I always enjoy going to this Art Gallery while in Fredericton. There is always something new to see although I missed the old masters that are on loan this year but hopefully they will be back next time I visit. It is worth the visit.

Our "quick" visit to the gallery turned into a couple hours. We were amazed at the volume of excellent pieces that were on display. Brilliant staff and beautiful interior. Highly recommend a visit but leave time to enjoy the space & its works.

too bad management had to "chop" up the beautiful large galleries and make it look like some small private gallery.

I was told major part of the collection is on tour. What they have on display is very disappointing. I'm an art lover who loves spending hours to days in Museums, but even on a free evening, this museum was a waste of time with barely anything to entertain you for more than 30 min. I even say the metallic... More

Fredericton is beautiful. People were friendly and outgoing, the streets easy to ramble. We enjoyed the music in officer's square and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The gallery was small but lovely, the Off the Grid collection really fun and absorbing.

I have to say we were disappointed with our visit to the BeaverBrook museum. We had our hearts set on seeing the Dali painting (see photo above). We were met with disappointment when we were informed that the painting was on tour. On the wall, where the Dali was normally installed, there were about 20 paintings by Krieghoff. Unfortunately many... More

I love Beaverbrook Art Gallery. We usually go once a summer because we have a summer residence in St. Andrews. The exhibitions are always changing and interesting.

If you are going to be in NB or travelling through plan to stop here. This is a Gallery worthy of Montreal/Toronto/Boston. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff.
