If you require accessible parking, please call ahead to reserve these spaces. Otherwise, there is ample 2-hour street parking around the Museum.


The Museum is generally a quiet space, with no music. When we have groups of children visiting the galleries, it can become a bit loud, but otherwise, voices tend to be lowered. The Education Centre, which doubles as an art exhibit space, is also regularly rented for group events which can increase ambient volume (but rarely interferes with the other gallery spaces).

In 2020 the Museum’s ventilation was updated with a HEPA filtration system.

Please visit our online tour for a preview of our spaces.

Assistive Devices

A courtesy wheelchair is available in the atrium for guests’ use. For more information, call us at 905.627.7412.
