The museum is quite small on the McMaster campus but free to visit. Nicely laid out and not crowded. Spend about 30 minutes here. Do come if you are close but don't go out of your way for this one.

My daughter and I enjoyed it, my wife was so-so about it. I particularly liked the 70s pieces (Bridget Riley's)_and found them to be very interesting. My daughter loved the Delacroix pencil drawings. It spans from artwork from around 500-1000 BC to present day.

Free admission (please donate if you can). Exhibits change with the university's semesters roughly. Thought provoking, stirring, masterful. Consider visiting for about an hour.

It's a great place to visit whether you are or are not from the University. They refresh the exhibits decently often and is on a great campus, which you can admire as well.

The MMA is a beautiful, small museum located on the beautiful McMaster campus. I'd recommend going to the museum in the fall, as the campus is beautiful at that time so along with the museum, you can definitely see the beauty of the campus and...More
