Part of museum was closed for renovation, so felt like I got less than what I paid for. There was one exhibit of famous people who died early in life. A book was available that told you interesting facts about each.

Go to the U of A website to find out what exhibit is presently there. It's free and it will put you in the heart of U of A. Take time to ride the streetcar and explore the area's restaurants, etc.

This is a relatively small museum, but had wonderful representation of famous artists. It was very enjoyable and could be seen in an hour or two.
