“Beautfiul art gallery with interesting special exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

went there recently to see the Picasso exhibit. Its a wonderful gallery especially when there is a visiting exhibit. Parking can be challenging but it is located close to the subway.

“Picasso Exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I only spent a half day in the art gallery and apart from the Picasso exhibition visited some of the Canadian artists but I would have liked to have seen more but we were short of time.Would definitely recommend it.

“Beautiful building, focus on Canadian art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It's worth it for the building alone, but there is lots to learn about Canadian art. There is often a blockbuster traveling show to see and important contemporary art. And there are always the miniature boats>

“Good repository of Canadian Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Spent a nice couple hours learning about the history and art history of Canada. Its not the best art in many respects, but it is unique, and reflects the place, and its theirs.
