I recently stopped by the Bruce while trying to kill time in the area (really) and I was pleasantly surprised at the variety in this museum. I only had time to see the children's book exhibit (very nice, but now closed) and the Paris paintings. Both were well worth it! There was also a science part of the museum that... More

The Bruce is a top-notch local museum. It never disappoints. Small in size, it draws excellent exhibitions and offers a fine permanent collection. The Bruce offers children's programs, adult lectures, outdoor art shows, etc. everything is top- notch. Their gift shop is also impressive with items available in all price ranges. I try to go as often as possible.

We saw a collection of paintings of large cats, lions, tigers, etc. The artist used them to design scarves for Hermes. Beautiful. They also had a nice craft/art show we visited. Nicely done.

Went to this museum today and was pleasantly surprised with the variety and detail of the exhibits. They currently have an extensive art exhibit based around Paris and a children's book illustration exhibit. I believe these are both temporary but both are brilliant and worth the price of admission. Their trademark natural history exhibits are also top notch. I highly... More

Stopped in today and was very impressed with the variety and detail of the exhibits. One of the best small museums I've been to. The current Paris art exhibit is breathtaking and the children's illustration exhibit is very interesting. Their trademark natural history exhibits are also a sight to behold. I highly recommend this one!

The Bruce Museum was a great visit!!! Fun for family and children ( the natural local history dioramas were what the little ones love to check out) and the museum has a serious vision about art not to be taken lightly but also of high quality as well! Definitely worth a trip. Great place for kids to explore more than... More

If you are in town a very interesting museum especially fir children with fluorescent rocks as well as local natural history exhibits. But warning - if taxidermically preserved animals are not for you or the kids think twice BUT. When we were there, there was a spectacular exhibit of quilts tracing African American History. I enjoyed the museum as a... More

Free admission on Tuesdays and a perfect day spent with my 13 year old daughter during spring break. An African American quilting exhibit brought us to the museum. My daughter went with her school on a trip to sketch their favorite peice. Unfortunately her class didn't have time to discuss the artwork. Decided a return trip was necessary so we... More
