  • Museum is very nice! Long line but the wait went by quickly. They take your jackets and big bags and hold it in a room for you. One floor of the museum is based on a New York artist. The other floor is filled with sculptures. I recommend visiting this museum. All the artwork is beautiful to look at :) This is also a boutique. I recommend bringing extra money if you would like to shop. Some of the items can cost up to $200 while other items are less than $30.
  • This is a huge spacious museum consisting of 5 pavilions all connected underground. It features Canadian as well as international artists. It has more impressionist paintings than most museums. The Arts of One World display is very interesting. One day is not enough to see everything!!!
