The Art Gallery of Hamilton has an extensive permanent collection and hosts interesting special displays on a regular basis. Members get free admission - worthwhile as you will want to plan to visit as the exhibits change.

This is a fairly large, mostly modern. museum of art, right in the heart of downtown Hamilton. However, except for an enormous collection of Canadian artists, a few Andy Warhols, and one Louise Nevelson, most of the art is by relatively unknown or obscure artists....More
