Fantastic collection and such a beautiful gallery space. Very friendly people who care about the art. The campus is beautiful too and a wonderful building - very fresh and clean.

The museum is quite small on the McMaster campus but free to visit. Nicely laid out and not crowded. Spend about 30 minutes here. Do come if you are close but don't go out of your way for this one.

Mac's Museum of Art has some beautifully assembled and thought-provoking displays. They are memorable enough to keep you thinking about them long after the visit.

This is a well-appointed small art gallery on two levels of a building adjacent to the Mills Library on the McMaster University campus. Admission is free and the staff are extremely friendly. The current exhibition of Expressionist Art (through 3 December) has some interesting minor pieces (drawings, woodcuts, etc.) by quite a few major European artists such as Edvard Munch and Kathe Kollwitz. There are also some contemporary works inspired by Expressionism. (These look more dated than the older stuff.) You won't leave any the wiser about what Expressionism was/is, but if you like art the exhibition will hold your attention for about an hour.

My daughter and I enjoyed it, my wife was so-so about it. I particularly liked the 70s pieces (Bridget Riley's)_and found them to be very interesting. My daughter loved the Delacroix pencil drawings. It spans from artwork from around 500-1000 BC to present day.
