You can do the whole museum in 2 hours, but it's a nice, cozy museum. The kids loved the Native American display area, and the small room of sea creatures. I'd definitely go back when the exhibit changes.

I've been going to the Bruce Museum since I was a little girl. It has changed tremendously since then, all for the better. Excellent art exhibits, fun science exhibits and informative local natural history exhibits make this a great place for families to visit.

The Bruce Museum is a gem! It has an interesting permanent collection, but what sets it apart are the great special exhibits that are routinely present. Easy to find off I-95, you will be rewarded whenever you visit!

Always love to pop in the Bruce, because there's something new every time. Easy to get to, lots of free parking, and a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Pretty grounds, as well.

The Bruce is a quiet little place that punches above its weight class. Just returned from an incredible show on Danish Masters. I think these were the most beautiful paintings I've ever seen. All from the Danish golden age of painting in the late 19th...More
