Suprisingly good!!

This is a world class museum, located in a small Canadian city. We have visited galleries all over the world and this is a surprising treat! The conservatory is lovely!

I had such a good time looking at everything here, I certainly want to visit again. They say the displays change often so always something different to see.

Living Sky Cafe is local gem, homemade to order from fresh ingredients at a super reasonable price! Open everyday - wheelchair accessible and lots of parking...

The Mendel Art Gallery was recommended to me and so I went on a walk along the beautiful river to find it. I enjoy the exhibits I saw, but I was left wanting more. I understand the facility is going to be revamped into a children's science exhibit. It did feel a little tired to me. I loved the native... More

I have been to the Mendel many times over the years. They staff have always been very friendly and helpful. The exhibits rotated frequently and right now, children's school art is being showed which is a very nice gesture from the art gallery to students. It is unfortunately closing very soon and it will be missed.

Nice little gallery which unfortunately is about to close. There is a new gallery under construction in Saskatoon but it is nowhere near opening so it is not clear why the Mendel is closing now.

I LOVE the Mendel! It's been quite a while since I've been there, but it's still great! They do workshops on Sundays which are great to take kids to, and they are free of charge (which makes it even better). Admission is always free, and Sundays at 1 they offer a free tour of the exhibitions they have at the... More

I've being going to the Mendel Art Gallery since I was a teenager and think it's one of the best kept secrets in Saskatoon. It is small, intimate an unpretentious, with an excellent permanent collection and shows that I always find interesting. The conservatory is a welcome break from winter but a lovely place to visit in all seasons. The... More

Small unfinished gallery. Overpriced gift shop. Not that impressed. One thing is the green space inside but it had lovers in there so we felt uncomfortable with it. Sorry, but we would not visit again. Too bad because we had read good thongs about it...
