We went here for a couple of hours. They had an interesting exhibit from Canada and some of their permanent pieces were worthwhile but it's not s big museum and if the temporary exhibit doesn't interest you it's a bit of a waste.

The art is good but not what I'd call spectacular. The gift shop had nice things but way too expensive to be considered. Mostly I found this a cool-off opportunity with free wifi for a hot afternoon.

The girls also enjoyed their visit! Very diversified and interesting. Did not know what to expect, and we were all pleased with the visit. Recommend this when in BA.
