“Friendly staff!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Not a huge gallery but still enough to keep you occupied for an hour. Great stuff to see, some local artists and a little gift shop with some great books on Oshawa. Once our kids are a little older we may enroll them in some of the art classes.

“Where an amazing collection meets classic architecture”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

The RMG is Oshawa and regions gem. Art lovers will be always challenged, intrigued and fully satiated by the the combination of great programming and the ongoing and revolving exhibitions from the deep treasure that resides in the permanent collection. Worth a trip from anywhere. If you didn't know about Canadian abstraction and it's place in the art world you should go here. Beautiful Erickson building now being graced by Douglas Coupland sculpture.
