I have driven past this place numerous times, have heard about it, and finally got to go in. An elegant old building with vaulted ceiling. The staff was helpful but he the exhibitions were somewhat disappointing. The main room showed two projected images, nothing else....More

The site was an interesting outdoor display of sculptures. While a central legend gave the titles and layout of each piece, individual description would be so much more helpful.

I was delighted by this large, bright museum interior inside a heritage building. The exhibitions were varied and included contemporary and modern examples of art and sculpture, as well as some applied art objects from the collection.

Who would expect such a wonderful art gallery? I attended a recent opening by invitation; rarely have I seen so many interested patrons, talking art in a gallery. The food and wine were among the best ever seen at such an event; the University's president...More

Recently renovated and made fully accessible, the little-known gallery is a jewel of Guelph. There are new exhibitions frequently, and a permanent collection which contains fine works by the Group of Seven, and other Canadian artists. Many outrdoor exhibits also.
