This gallery grew out of a private collection and is now absolutely iconic in terms of the Group of Seven & Thom Thompson and other Canadian artists.
Both floors are fully accessible, and the building is a fittingly beautiful place for the art. While there is an admission price for the gallery (and another for parking) it is reasonable. There is also an outdoor walk with bronze sculptures at no cost to the visitor.
The setting is gloriously beautiful and there are always other activities going on on the site.
Worth taking a stroll in the nearby downtown as well.
One really very minor criticism: There is a lot of signage talking about the efforts of the CCI. It took me three rooms before I found one that identified the Canadian Conservatory Institute. Initials shoud always be explained at the top of each sign to keep lesser mortals such as myself informed.
