“Simply Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

What can I say? The Gallery in itself is a beauty, but I can spend hours upon hours just admiring. Everytime I go, I come away with a different appreciation.

“Tremendous collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

If you enjoy galleries this is a "must-visit" if you are in Ottawa. There is more to see than you can possibly fit into one visit, with a tremendous variety of collections. A definite highlight of our visit to Ottawa, would definitely go there again.
