I was here for a conference and really enjoyed it. Lots of room for meetings and a beautiful setting in the middle of the city. A great venue for hosting any type of event. And lots of great art too!

an interesting exhibition, one gallery that featured old masters and showed how they had been created/restored. also a very extensive collection of Native art and stories about their background. Third floor in between displays so admission price was adjusted accordingly, a nice touch. Beautiful building!

Although not a large gallery compared to some, nonetheless, it is a fascinating display of art and architecture. The Group of Seven is very important to us, and their take on this well-studied group was new and different. We took the free (with admission) 20...More

It is a pretty small gallery in a well-designed building. They do have very nice temporary exhibitions every once in a while, but sometimes visitors have not much to see. It pays to monitor their event calendar.
