  • Feel like they have a lot of space and they could really add much more for exhibits. my 6 year old really took a liking to the lady at the front counter who was super friendly and great with him. We went specifically to see the Maud Lewis exhibit but took in everything. Was a great experience to share with my son.
  • Really fun place to go! Lots of different exhibits that can take anywhere from one to two hours if you take your time. Definitely recommended, especially during the free viewing hours.
