“Free on Thursday evenings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Very nice collection of African art. Also Northern Renaissance painters, including one Rembrandt. Fairly small exhibition space, but the collection rotates. Art rentals avaialable.

“Dissapointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

There wre only half the galleries open for viewing. I am usually very open to modern art, but some of the pieces were terrible. The one brght sopt for me was the African gallery.

I am so glad I only had to pay a Sneior Citizen discount ticket price.

“The way an art collection should be displayed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

This little gem within the grounds of Queens university is very well organized with plenty of info on all it's art. The collection has variety by covering a large span of time. Allocate at least 1 hour if you love art.

“Keeps expanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

This institution is the best art museum between Toronto and Montreal (not including Ottawa). The old Dutch collection donated by Dr. Bader is especially noteworthy. They continually mount exhibits of challenging Canadian artists - contemporary and historic - as well.
