Bateman followers won't mind paying the $12.50 per head to enter. I went on a free night and so my enthusiasm is relative. There is something really exciting about being able to get up close to an original painting by an iconic artist. The video is not to be missed. It gave a sense of Bateman, his values, his love of nature and was quite inspiring. This museum has a lot of variety and did not disappoint.

We started with the short video of Robert Bateman 'in his own words'. The video helped explain his approach to his art and the nature surrounds us. Every adult, teenager and child should see the works showcased in this harbourside, historical Building. He has captured many subjects that may not survive the next generation.

Great collection of paintings. Gift shop is good. You can buy lithographs in the gift shop. Parking is tight.

The gallery is a wonderful tribute to the talents of Robert Bateman. My family and I enjoyed perusing the countless master pieces created by a true Canadian icon. Interactive exhibits were great for the kids.

Robert Bateman has a philosophy and a message that is important to us all. He shows us his message of respect and care of our natural world with his art and often follows up with the written word. His paintings are breathtaking.
Truly one of The highlights of our week long trip to Victoria, I encourage anyone who cares about nature and our future generations to visit this small gallery.
