Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton

4.2
#1 of 11 in Museums in Fredericton
Offering a chance to see Salvador Dali's works in New Brunswick, Beaverbrook Art Gallery also displays pieces by Joshua Reynolds, John Constable, J. M. W. Turner, and other notable painters. In addition to the permanent collection, the gallery also hosts temporary exhibits, so there's always something new to see. Ask the curator to tell you more about the works, and pick up a souvenir at the onsite gift shop. Plan my day in Fredericton using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Stunning works of art on display with docents available makes it such a great experience. Plenty of various artists and styles to be seen, with something new to be found with each visit. Prices are very affordable and makes for an excellent outing, the expanded gallery offers up some new delights. Definitely worth at least one visit if only to see the huge Dali painting.
  • I wish the accessible entrance and the main entrance were one and the same. If you use the accessible entrance you must start your visit from the back of the exhibits and must work against the flow that the curators have set up. This really runs contrary to principles of universal design and it could and should have been addressed with the re-opening. That being said, it could still easily be fixed. That complaint aside, this is an essential Fredericton destination.
  • This has always been a wonderful gallery, and the new wing is a perfect addition. Lots of room for temporary exhibits, and a visiting artist studio open to visitors of the gallery. There is a trendy coffee shop in the new addition. The website offers all kinds of workshops and presentations. The Dali has been moved, and looks much smaller in its new location in the gallery.
  • A beautiful space, with some spectacular and unexpected pieces in its collection. The addition of the cafĂ© is also a treat if you're there with friends or family.
  • Breathtaking art,note the floors are marble and they do have seating throughout.Best to wear comfortable footwear.
