For a modest space, the Bruce Museum offers some excellent exhibits. I saw the Sisley show, which was very well curated. Skip the docent tours - sadly, they add little value to the experience. Leave time for the gift shop; it's actually reasonable and has some very interesting things on offer.

The Street Smart photography exhibit really captured the mood and good vibes of New York City! Afterward shopping in the gift shop was a lot of fun! Had a huge variety of gifts to choose from, and the saleswomen were especially helpful. Can't wait to return!

Exhibit was interesting, well laid out. There is also another wing of this museum dedicated to local interests of the area - suitable for all ages. Gift shop is worth the visit. Enjoyed a Sunday afternoon visiting this location. Also, plenty of parking.

This is a small museum in G'Wich. It's located in an old mansion in a park down near the train station. It's well organized with a very friendly staff. The museum doesn't have much in the way of a permanent painting or sculpture collection, although there are lots of revolving visiting artist exhibits. There is a Childe Hassan there that... More

the impressionist painting of Alfred Sisley is on display at. Bruce Museum. Impressive history of his life and how he wanted to paint instead of other options. He painted with other famous artist - Monet and Renoir. there is a permanent collection on display - see website.

The new exhibit of Sisley paintings and another new exhibit of miniatures were beautiful things to view. The Bruce museum is small but always has a collection with great impact. It is wonderful to indulge in the paintings and then be awestruck by a unique collection of miniature works like nothing we've ever seen. It is always a joy to... More

I learn a lot when I go there. The museum is a nice size. Cool rock exhibit. Changing science stuff with a dynamic curator who knows his stuff and can tell you about it. Great art that changes a lot with the help of NY curator Ken Silver!
