  • had pleasant lunch in the connected cafe; then enjoyed two exhibitions; also great shop to check out after your visit 
  • Nicely curated gallery in the heart of downtown Hamilton. Parking is convenient and a decent little cafe inside. The collection is fairly extensive and I've seen some interesting installations in the past year or so. The highlight for the kids is the VM microbus on permanent display. My son loves it making the AGH a perfect destination on PA days.
  • There's nothing I adore more than art. The AGH is a lovely gallery located in downtown Hamilton, and is certainly worth the visit. Parking is convenient and easy. The gallery has changing exhibitions going on throughout the year, and it's always a pleasure to stop by and take a look. They also have a lovely cafe located inside the gallery incase you need a snack break!
  • This is a great place to visit to see Canadian artist. it has a good selection of old and modern art. The galleries were well layer out and are accessible to the disabled.
  • Took the family there, the VW bus was a hit with the kids, we enjoyed the works of Emily Carr and the Group of Seven, small gallery laid out well. Why the blue square painting is mixed in with landscapes is the only thing that perplexed us!
  • Really great small collection and very often not busy. Very easy to get to. The rooftop garden is great as well and sometimes has live music
