National Gallery Of Canada - Review

With a huge spider sculpture welcoming you at the entrance, you get ready to see the surreal collection of National Gallery of Canada. The Gallery was founded in 1880 and is by far, one of the best art galleries in the world. The beautiful building itself was designed by Moshe Safdie and showcases a wide collection of some of the best paintings, sculptures and photographs in the country.

The art collection by European artists is second to none in the world and artists like Louis-Philippe Hebert, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Alex Colville and Emily Carr among others, truly adds to the stunning collection.

National Gallery Of Canada, Ottawa Reviews

  • Really nice gallery. There are quite a few impressionist paintings including Monet and Renoir. I can spending a whole day here. The lobby looks Really nice and relaxing. I can sit around and order a coffee there. Support the gift store and buy some prints - great price. Don’t forget it’s always free admission every Thursday from 5pm to 8pm. Please let your friends know about it.

  • Wow! Without a doubt, the greatest Art Gallery in Canada. The wide variety and diversity of this gallery is outstanding. Such relaxed exhibits as well, you are able to enjoy the beautiful art without being bothered by distractions. It must be something in the architecture, it's such an inviting place. Obviously, it goes without saying that the art in this gallery is incredible. The tour guides are also fantastic and very interactive. I would definitely return here again!

  • Claimed to be the leading museum standing for the country Canada, National Gallery of Canada has the most a collection of all in this country. One time visit will fail you as the limited time would be outrun by the amount of the arts works in display. Paintings are commonly expected in a gallery. But it has a collection of photographs pulling together a timeline of camera evolution and photography concepts based on camera mechanisms and artistic innovations. I personally enjoyed the most the photograph institute and sculptures just for my first visit. Looking forward to the future visits.

  • Shared a field trip with my daughter. Day full of fun. Very nice pieces in the gallery. The tour guide did a great job in informing the parents and kids throughout the day. Would recommend taking the time off if your child is going on a field trip here. Overall A+

  • The experience starts when you're walking into the building. The architecture is breathtaking. From there no matter what you choose to see you won't be disappointed. The exhibits all hold something to capture the imagination. The variety of Art makes recurring visits an endless possibility. The National Gallery of Canada is definitely worth exploring.
