When we recently tried to reserve seats for an evening play in their studio workshop, we were told that it was only general seating, in other words "first come, first seated." When you are planning a nice evening with friends, starting with a nice dinner in a local eatery, you are taking a huge chance of getting seating together, even... More

This is a great place to spend a few hours in Burlington. The artwork is of high quality as well as displays of pottery etc. Their gift shops has many great items if you're looking for a souvenir to take home. They have a great selection of jewellery, pottery, scarves and artwork in all sizes.

Burlington Art Centre is great but the staff and grumpy & not friendly- lighten up! I've been going to the BAC for over 20 years and love its mandate and exhibitions etc., but the staff need to be better at friendliness. Almost every time I've walked into the main entry, the staff (may be they're volunteers) rarely look up from... More

Nice theatre. I feel that the cost of constructing this building for the City of Burlington to enjoy was too expensive. Do not really appreciate the architecture and there are numerous other theatres in the area that can be enjoyed by the locals. Also find the presentations boring

We love this place. When we need a special gift, we know that we will always find it there. It is also near the waterfront and you can just walk across and enjoy the park.

I frequent the AGB several times a year. Each time there is always something different happening, a buzz going. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Although the Gallery is mainly focused on ceramics, there are several different mediums to view and if so inclined, one can join a group/guild to express or develop your artistic talents. And a wonderful gift... More

It's no longer known as the Burlington Art Centre, has been the Art Gallery of Burlington for some time now, offering the same type of exhibits, but reflecting a new marketing policy. The AGB has numerous exhibit rooms, one of the finest ceramic collections in the country, and a wide array of guilds that are based here, providing artisians the... More
