This was the first time I had been to the gallery with kids and I think there could be a little work to make it more interesting for kids; perhaps a scavenger hunt. The collection, however, is amazing. I was thrilled to be able to share the experience of sitting in front of the Dali and being engulfed in the... More

Saw some art. Walk around saw more art. Went downstairs I believe and saw some more art. The impressive pieces are in the main lobby it's a Dali I believe. I'm not an art enthusiast but I'm sure to the person who likes art this place is great.

We had a lovely visit and enjoyed the art tremendously. I loved the mix of very old pieces in the collection right up to the current local artists that were being featured. Overall a lovely art gallery!

A few beautiful Dalis and some nice collections, but it does not take long to go through as the large rooms are more space than art. There should also be a greater collection of regional and Canadian art.

I used to take art classes here! Thursday evenings are free as you pay by donation. It is also free for students with a valid student ID. I enjoy visiting every few months to see the newest exhibitions.

This small gallery was full of surprises. They had art that people who are not into art culture can truly appreciate. They had some magnificent paintings along with special collections going back hundreds of years. I was impressed.

This is one of the gems of the Maritimes. It is wonderful to see the plans for expansion of this excellent gallery.

When we walked into the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, we were not expecting such a huge collection of art! We had a very nice informative tour, and spent much more time here than we thought we would. (2+ hours!) Although our 13 year old daughters were bored out of their minds, my husband and I loved it!

Unbelievable collection for a small city. We spent 2 hours, but should have budgeted more time. The Mary Pratt's and the Dali were extraordinary
