We are currently renovating part of our existing building to provide an enhanced visitor experience, as well as in preparation for joining the new pavilion under construction to the existing facility. Because of the central location of this work, and because of the nature of the projects involved, the building will be temporarily closed to visitors from January 18, 2016, until May, 2016. We regret the inconvenience to visitors, and look forward to welcoming you into our renovated space in May. The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, a gift to the people of New Brunswick from Lord Beaverbrook (Sir Max Aitken), features works by Canadian and British artists and a unique sample of works from international artists. The Gallery exhibits an exciting mix of works from its own collection as well as works and exhibitions on loan from other institutions.

As with all muesums or art galleries, if you can take an official tour you learn so much ore than just visiting on your own. I have been to this gallery at least a dozen times and have never felt bored.

Had a lovely tour through this small but impressive art museum. From the Dali painting hanging in the entry foyer to the many other classic works of art this museum is a gem.

We travelled to Fredericton for the weekend to visit the Gallery and were not disappointed. Wide variety of art, lots of Canadian artists, beautiful art by the Masters. A large addition is scheduled to open later this year, so we will be back!

One of my favourite places to visit in Fredericton on a monthly basis. Always a different piece of art that inspires you each time.

This was worth the visit but was disappointed by the lack of self guided tour facities available to visitors as it would have been nice to get an idea of what I was looking at.

While visiting family in Fredericton, stopped by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Wonderful pieces from various artists. Particularly enjoyed the sketches of Winston Churchill and their historical significance, as well as the exhibit of World War I paintings.

I'm a huge fan of all things art. I was definitely excited for the chance to visit our local gallery, The Beaverbrook. It had been years since my last visit and I must say - not much has changed. The gallery is in the middle of a major renovation, so a lot of the pieces the gallery has become known... More

I was rather disappointed with the overall low quantity of exhibits but also the leaning towards the ultra modern which just appeal to me personally. The few classical/impressionist paintings were a welcome relief. I don't expect anyone to agree with me but just be forewarned.
