Took tour yesterday - very informative, and interesting. The talk on the Dali painting made me look at it in a whole new way.

I was very surprised by this gallery. I have been in many art galleries in some large cities and was very impressed by the collection in this gallery. On top of that one of the security people was the best tour guide i have ever had. Though that is not his job he has unbelievable knowledge of the art work... More

One of the best museum in New Brunswick. Exhibition for different kinds of paintings and artistic works seasonally. Including some masterpieces. It's a wise choice to take a visit if you visit or live in Freddy. It's very good for college students as well.

We went here on a date night to see the Master's Collection and were so glad that we did. It was amazing. This is such a great gallery. I hadn't been in about a year and there were so many new exhibits to see. We caught the exhibit from the students at the College of Craft and Design which was... More

We did not really know about this Art Gallery until we stumbled upon it on the way back to our B&B. Although it was on the map we had not appreciated how special it was. What a fantastic discovery. It was easy to stand and study the artworks as it was not crowded, it was an enjoyable experience.

We saw Masterworks of the Gallery - paintings by Emily Carr, Augustus John, Dali. Walter Sickert, Group of Seven, Graham Sutherland, etc. Lovely setting and nicely displayed.

The BAG has a much better art collection than what you would expect for a small town. The BAG was founded by Lord Beaverbrook who assembled an impressive art collection. The BAG lacks the resources for the effective marketing and modern facilities such as the AGO, but don't let that fool you; the art is impressive (and an expansion is... More

One if the jewels of Fredericton - and one of best galleries of its size on eastern seaboard for breadth and quality of permanent collection. Works hard to engage with temporary exhibits. A relaxing break for travelers. Friendly informal staff.

New Brunswick has a llot to be proud with with this wonderful art gallery in Frederictton. It compares to many in much larger centers and of course the large Dali as you enter the building is worth the trip on its own.It is a not to be missed if you are in the area!
