Very comfortable Galleries with a beautiful collection of Art. The architecture of the building is also very interesting and there is a great farm to table restaurant inside, Halcyon.

We enjoyed the Mint Museum Uptown's excellent collection of modern and contemporary paintings. We found the older landscapes and portraits less interesting. The real strength of the museum is its contemporary crafts exhibitions. We enjoyed the art glass exhibit, particularly the castings. An exhibit of...More

I thought this was going to be a history of currency museum, but it is an art gallery. Very interesting none the less, but one section was not to my taste at all

There's underground parking at the building next door (Levine Centre for the Arts) I believe the entrance to the parking is on W. Stonewall St. It's $3.00 per half hour during the day, $5 after 5pm.
