I love the size of the museum, it’s not overwhelming big. Very pleasant to check every exhibit in a nice and easy pace. The focus on new and mordant arts made everything feels fresh and inspiring.

Stopped by this place after eating nearby. What a great museum - cool art, interactive drawing table in the 'costume' exhibit - definitely worth the time.

Being in the military has its perks as my husband (who has served in the Navy for 30 years) and I were admitted for free. That was a real nice surprise. Not surprising is the cleanliness of the entire place. The exhibits were beautifully laid...More

There's underground parking at the building next door (Levine Centre for the Arts) I believe the entrance to the parking is on W. Stonewall St. It's $3.00 per half hour during the day, $5 after 5pm.
