Art Museum Art Gallery
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. Put McMichael Canadian Art Collection at the forefront of your travel plans using our Vaughan tourist route planner.

  • Aside from the breathtaking exhibitions, the building and grounds are beautiful and an oasis that must be experienced. One can't help but decompress here. The food in the restaurant is always fresh and inventive and the gift shop offers a wonderful array of jewelery and Canadian crafts. This gallery is a Canadian treasure.
  • An art collection like no other, in a truly beautiful physical setting. This is an iconic place for the Group of Seven, and a touchstone for Canada' artistic identity. It's a place where you can learn profound things about what it is to be Canadian, in ways that go far beyond words.
  • Great Gallery. Great location! Fantastic grounds! Do not miss the trails in the valley! Check the interesting sculpture garden!
  • Excellent staff and gallery set up. A great day to spend indoors or outdoors! A great variety of genres for all art lovers.
  • The McMichael Gallery is a real jewel. They always have interesting exhibitions. The latest, featuring Group of Seven artist Lawren Harris was fantastic. Considering his famous landscape paintings were just at the AGO I think it was a bold step to show his abstracts in the same year. I have to say that I loved both shows, but felt more engaged with the McMichael show. His pieces in this style really speak to me. I'll be back.
