If you have an hour free to enjoy art, jump in. Not big, but a nice diverse selection of art of good quality. Very few people so very peaceful and relaxing

When you visit in July it's always good to find something to do inside. This museum had several interesting collections. It was lovely and cool and quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed spending about an hour and a half wandering through.

What a fabulous museum. Don't miss their exhibit "State of the Art". It's worth the few extra dollars.

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.
