McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg

4.4
Bask in the landscapes painted by some of Canada’s great artists housed at McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Initially a labor of love for Signe and Robert McMichael, the institution opened in 1965 built upon the couple’s passion for Canadian art, specifically the captivating work of “The Group of Seven.” The collection has grown considerably to include First Nations, Inuit, and contemporary art. Make your way around the gallery’s four floors, stopping for a rest and bite at the site’s cafe and then heading out to explore some of the 40 hectares (100 acres) of flourishing conservation land that includes the collection’s sculpture park. On-site parking is available for a fee. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Vaughan trip simple and quick.

  • Amazing property turned into a gallery, just imagine what it would have been like to live there? Incredibly gorgeous building filled with talented Canadians works, the property is also gorgeous for a hike, definitely worth the visit. (Bring your own food)
  • My favourite art gallery in Canada. Small but perfect. There are walking trails into the valley behind the building that are worth taking during your visit.
  • The Russians have The Group of Five aka The Five, a name given to a team of five Russian composers who united in the 1860s to develop an authentic national school of music. But the Canadians have The Group of Seven, a name reserved for an association of seven European descent landscape painters formed in the early 1900s. Their originality is striking. Seeing their works, one soon notices that they are a moving rendition of the European settlers' emotional reaction to the great landscapes of Canada, including the Arctic. This art collection located in a magnificent forest should be a must for any self respecting foreign or Canadian tourist.
  • Nice collection of the Group of Seven artwork. Located on a beautiful conservation area with extensive walking paths. Affordable fees (senior, adult and child rates) plus a parking fee. Easy to get to by car, a little outside of Toronto. A cafe/restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating available. Wheelchair and stroller accessible (elevators). Family friendly. I recommend a short visit here, schedule approximately 2-3 hours.
  • Beautiful collection of Canadian art in a stunning setting. The surrounding forestry is wonderfully displayed throughout the exhibits. The buildings themselves are well designed and are a pleasure to walk through. Excellent art curation and special exhibits.
