The McMichael Canadian Art Collection is a unique and thoroughly niche experience. From the art that the gallery showcases to the surrounding landscape it finds itself in, the McMichael is the perfect introduction to Canada – its art, people, culture and history. The gallery houses over 6000 artworks by artists who have made a contribution to Canada’s artistic heritage. The building, built of fieldstone and hand-hewn logs, houses thirteen exhibition galleries is situated amid 100 acres of serene conservation land. Floor-to-ceiling windows enable visitors to enjoy marvellous views of the densely wooded Humber River Valley.

The McMichael displays a wide range of exhibitions each year, and offers a stimulating array of programs and events for people of all ages. They include curators’ lectures, tours, music performances, kids’ camps, workshops, school programs and hands-on art activities.

With the McMichael Canadian Art Collection visitors have the unique chance of experiencing Canada’s history and cultures in a day.
