  • The museum is kinda small, but the building is really nice. I like that they really support local artist, so it is a must-go for anyone who likes art and is not familiar with Canadian artists.  more »

  • Great place to go, lovely staff, super nice and informational. Quaint place to go, a bit more upscale than most as it's an art gallery although there is no dress code. Also the exhibits change frequently so you can see alot of different galleries. Always something new to see. Very welcoming environment.
  • Very nice gallery. Well curated exhibits, very nice venue. I was here when the "Songs for Pythagoras" exhibit was running and really liked it. The building is very unique as well and is much cooler when you see the atrium from the inside. Worth the trip!
  • Stunning architecture, but there are some very sparse exhibits inside. The top floors have a lot of empty space that could be better used to display more art. We came on family day so it was free, which was very nice!
  • Multi-leveled attraction for sophistication and time killing. Interesting interior design of natural wood, concrete and aluminum. Has coffee shop on the top level. Areas for kids and rest. Exhibits depend on time of month as there are new ones being updated quite often.
  • Great place to visit, great way to spend the day. Staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. Interesting exhibits and a very nice building. Really enjoyed the Globe and Mail exhibit, very interesting and informative.
