We are currently renovating part of our existing building to provide an enhanced visitor experience, as well as in preparation for joining the new pavilion under construction to the existing facility. Because of the central location of this work, and because of the nature of the projects involved, the building will be temporarily closed to visitors from January 18, 2016, until May, 2016. We regret the inconvenience to visitors, and look forward to welcoming you into our renovated space in May. The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, a gift to the people of New Brunswick from Lord Beaverbrook (Sir Max Aitken), features works by Canadian and British artists and a unique sample of works from international artists. The Gallery exhibits an exciting mix of works from its own collection as well as works and exhibitions on loan from other institutions.

We knew going in the Masters works were touring, but the rest just wasn't up to snuff. Comparable to a lot of small galleries in a lot of places.

My husband and I really enjoyed our art gallery visit. It wasn't too expensive to get in. ($10/ person, and 10% off if you have a CAA card) We spent Bouton 45 minutes checking out all the artwork. There was a cool Comic section last week while we were there. Most of the pieces were of political content, which we... More

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. There was nothing really outstanding in terms of what we saw, but that's okay. Most of what was on display was fairly contemporary.

Jackson, Emily Carr and a broad representation of First Nations and Acadian art works. As with any gallery, check their web site to see what works are on tour or loan and what exhibits are... More

The gallery is being expanded, so a lot of the collection is either stored or on loan. No Turner, Sargent or Tissots.

The number and variety of paintings is outstanding. The Dali's and the Krieghoff's are only the highlights.

This museum is not huge, which makes it manageable for exploring on your own- but the tour was really informative and enhanced our enjoyment of the art. After the tour we spent a good hour exploring on our own. This was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend a visit if you have any interest in art. Also worth noting- without... More

The gallery is now a modern space to view amazing art. It is open and spacious with light to allow room to view the pieces and move about freely.
