The Beaverbrook Gallery is a very nice art museum. The building itself is aesthetically pleasing. There is a very impressive Dali which is the highlight of the collection. Real kudos for presenting local artists. The coffee shop is very fine and overall it's a really pleasant experience.

This is an excellent gallery with a well curated selection of old and new, and sculptures and paintings.

The venue is beautiful. It was an unplanned, pleasant surprise.

The lady at the admissions desk is more interested in her cell phone than helping us. She did have cool pointy orange fingernails... expression of art can be found anywhere I guess. There were security guards wandering around in every room at all times (we saw 4 of them). The short brown guy was super helpful and very polite. The taller gym rat looking guy, rudely told us to move away from the entry wall when we were trying to leave. We were standing there because there were 3 groups of about 25 kids coming up the only entry ramp they have in the whole place!! The art displays were varied and very interesting. The bathrooms were clean and there is a lot of street parking everywhere out front of the building. If you are looking for something to do you might want to check out the Indigenous displays.

Fantastic art gallery with a pertinent sample of Canadian art. It also includes international art. Low 2 1/2 hours for a good visit. Not to be missed!

If you know your British WWII history, Beaverbrook will be familiar to you. He was the benefactor of this excellent museum. There is a good selection of Canadian art, all well presented in several comfortable galleries. There are lots of little gems throughout (a Churchill landscape for example). The museum is a NARM participant as well, so bring your card for free admission.

It was a pleasure to get back in the gallery after the renos. Maud Lewis, Joe Norris, Tom Thomson, Salvador Dali, Allan Syliboy, Chris Pratt, Andy Warhol, Andrew Steeves, and so many more to explore. Great little cafe to grab a sandwich and coffee after.

This is a solid local art museum, well laid out and pleasant. The $12 admission fee is worth it and you can spend 1-2 hours here. They had mainly temporary exhibits when I went so I think one's enjoyment of the museum will depend on what the exhibits are. Currently, there are 2 Riopelle exhibits, 2 photography exhibits, and a George Paginton exhibit (one of my favourites - he was the artist for the Toronto Star for decades and painted landscapes and cityscapes of Canadian towns and cities from coast to coast). They have a few Maud Lewis paintings which were nice to see. The exhibit of art work from local high school students in response to 2020-2022 events (COVID, Black Lives Matter movement, Ukraine war) was quite moving as well. The most surprising part of their permanent collection is a small room with 4 Salvador Dali paintings - definitely a must-see.

There is a tiny gift shop and lockers. The cafe was closed when we visited but the museum is right downtown close to many restaurants. It is also right off a nice trail where you can run or bike.

The combination of world-class art and the best of national and regional artists is something I would expect in a mid-to-large sized American city, and beyond what I would even expect in a large college town. Not to be missed.

Viewed the sculptures outside because the gallery is closed due to Covid-19 and construction. Online, I was able to see some remarkable pieces and collections from international artists dating back 700 years. I was made aware of the very fascinating “Beaverbrook Dispute” by the wife of the acclaimed author, Jacques Poitras whose book Beaverbrook – A Shattered Legacy chronicled the events surrounding that dispute. I will try and come back one day to see this gallery, but I've said that many times in my travels, But, sure to buy the book...

Surprised that a small town has such a wonderful art museum. Love this hidden jem. There are some amazing works in here and a very wide range of styles.
