I first went for a college project. It was nice to see all the different changing collections. They have a free day Friday nights. Beautiful setting. Parking can be a pain.

This museum is a best on every visitor and local's list because it has important works by contemporary artists as well as timely exhibitions focusing on themes, movements, or artists. It is in a beautiful building which allows for a leisurely tour and a break in the lovely cafe. The front desk is most helpful with suggestions for other sights... More

The museum has a fabulous collection which is displayed very professionally. If you are interested in contemporary art, this museum is a "must see".

It definitely had some gems and was easy to see in an afternoon. i went when there was a fee being waived on Fridays. Just don't try to bring your TIm Horton's coffee in with you - that's not allowed.

This Gallery was such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It had interesting exhibits. It is not too big so you can easily see it all in an afternoon. We also stopped in to the cafe on the premises and everyone in our group had tea/coffee and a dessert. The desserts were excellent. It was a great way to... More

This museum has a great permanent collection and a good calendar of special exhibits. It's well laid out, and had the most knowledgeable staff I've come across in an art museum. There's plenty to see - indoors and out - and something for everyone in my group.

We were pleasantly surprised by this museum. Firstly, admission was free on Sundays until early May. Secondly, they have a really interesting mix of installations and what I assume are pieces from a permanent collection. It's in a lovely area of town too. As a tourist coming from Toronto, we tend to spend most of our time shopping at the... More

The AK gets to the top of my list of great museums, not so much for their collection ( which is good, if a little small) but because of the way the art is grouped and displayed. It was a real treat to see different styles and periods displayed together in such a refreshing way. Loved that the gallery was... More
