“Dissapointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

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.

“The way an art collection should be displayed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

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.

“Keeps expanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

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.

“An art lover's gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

This gallery deserves a visit. It's away from the city centre and might be easy to miss, though it's located on the campus of Queen's University. The exhibits change regularly, and range from historical artifacts of Kingston, to 16th century Dutch paintings, to African masks and sculptures (just to give a few examples). There is something for every art lover, and also many exhibits challenge visitors to learn more and to stretch their tastes.
