  • Though tucked away along he waterfront and not very evident, this is a decent gallery. It has a good collection of items, and the gallery itself is for its size probably one of the better ones in...  more »

  • Very helpful and friendly staff. Interesting collection and gift shop.
  • Great place to view art but the cafe could really use some TLC
  • The best part thing about it is the free 2 hour parking. Unless you're related to one of the artists and have to go, save your money. There are perhaps a maximum of 50 paintings... I'm pretty sure it's closer to 30. That's it. Go to the Sault Ste. Marie Museum, the Bush Plane Museum, and the Ermatinger Clerge (Old Stone House) museum if you have the time. Walk on the waterfront and go to the locks. Unless you can get in for free, skip it (if you buy a multi-place pass you get the Bushplane, Sault Ste. Marie museum & Old Houses so that effectively makes the museum free).
  • The pictures, painting and sculpture speak for themselves!!!!! Beautiful ❤️ I could spend all day there admiring....
  • lovely atmosphere, great gift shop
