“wow - how incredible inside!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

It is a modern wonder! This building has taken advantage of some really great space and light. The feature galleries are well set up and spacious. It never feels like you're tripping over other people who are also looking at the displays.

“Wonderful Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

If you like art galleries you will love visiting this one. The building internally and externally are worth the visit. BTW the last Thursday of every month is free admission after 6pm. Also Zinc restaurant is attached and is a fantastic fancy dining experiance.

“A bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

The renos were much hyped but left me a bit cold, especially in cold weather. All the glass and steel was chilly. An odd odor in many of the rooms.
However, the art work was fantastic as always, including some installation pieces from Canada's north.
Staff friendly and eager to help/answer questions.
