Get Ready for Something Big!

To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Gallery is embarking on a major transformation. The Canadian Galleries are temporarily closed and will reopen on 15 June 2017 as the Canadian and Indigenous Galleries. Selected Contemporary galleries are also closed until spring 2017.

There’s still plenty to see and do during this time at the Gallery. Discover our European collections on view. Or take in a special exhibition.
