The Agnes is quite well-publicized in certain circles. It is a charming building on a beautiful campus and encompasses Agnes Etherington's home as well as the addition. So it has historical value as a building. Agnes was a remarkable woman in many ways and has a special place in the Queen's U story. The Old Masters are worth seeing and... More

This is the Queens University gallery and has some magnificent pieces - including three Rembrants. There is also some very interesting art conservation going on at the gallery,

A real hidden gem in Kingston, if you like art! Some great paintings on display, including two Rembrandts, and only $5 admission!

Surely one of the finest small galleries in Canada is located in Kingston as part of Queen's University. The collection is relatively small, but rich. The permanent collection is varied and the temporary exhibits are thought provoking. You can be assured that your visit will be a rewarding one.

Whether for an event, an exhivition, a visit to the Agnes house or to buy the perfect gift, the Agnes is a world class spot to see modern art as well as works from the greatest artists. A definite must if you visit Kingston, it is set in the beautiful historical campus of Queen's University.

Very nice collection of African art. Also Northern Renaissance painters, including one Rembrandt. Fairly small exhibition space, but the collection rotates. Art rentals avaialable.

There wre only half the galleries open for viewing. I am usually very open to modern art, but some of the pieces were terrible. The one brght sopt for me was the African gallery. I am so glad I only had to pay a Sneior Citizen discount ticket price.

This little gem within the grounds of Queens university is very well organized with plenty of info on all it's art. The collection has variety by covering a large span of time. Allocate at least 1 hour if you love art.

This institution is the best art museum between Toronto and Montreal (not including Ottawa). The old Dutch collection donated by Dr. Bader is especially noteworthy. They continually mount exhibits of challenging Canadian artists - contemporary and historic - as well.
