The Art Gallery of Hamilton has an extensive permanent collection and hosts interesting special displays on a regular basis. Members get free admission - worthwhile as you will want to plan to visit as the exhibits change.

If you happen to be in Hamilton, I would highly recommend a visit to the Art Gallery. Odd as it might sound, even if you aren't typically an art lover (as my fellow gallery-goer was not), it made for an interesting and pleasant outing. I...More

This is a fairly large, mostly modern. museum of art, right in the heart of downtown Hamilton. However, except for an enormous collection of Canadian artists, a few Andy Warhols, and one Louise Nevelson, most of the art is by relatively unknown or obscure artists....More

There is something for everyone here. Loved the mix for the permanent collection. Very much enjoyed the current special exhibit of Inuit carved art. Very interesting. Great space. Look forward to coming back.

I was surprised at the thoughtful curation and beautiful collections at the art gallery of Hamilton. It's really a gem in the landscape ever since the renovations, with its stunning four storey windows and huge space. I could lose myself there for an entire day!...More

Housed in a modern building, would describe collection as limited. Cannot figure out why there is not description of art on walls, such as artist, year, very few pieces have basic info. Can do entire gallery in a very short period of time
