  • A lot of collection of Canadian artist especially group of seven. A great collection of masterpieces from Monet, Vaughn, etc. Family friendly!! Lots of fun for kids especially in family day. Must-see place if you are visiting the Capital or want a fun place for your kids in those rainy days.
  • This place was really cool. clean, quiet, respectful employees, and a diverse selection of art. I recommend visiting the Inuit exhibit while youre there The price was also reasonable. No regrets.
  • The building itself is worth the price of admission. An absolutely stunning space. Canadian galleries are closed until spring 2017, but despite that disappointment there was plenty more to see. Will definitely be back, likely more than once
  • Some really significant pieces to see here but for me, the building was just as impactful. Beautiful.
  • Great pieces, beautiful building. The Canadian art exhibit was under construction unfortunately, but other exhibits were great.
