RiverBrink Art Museum, located in the historic village of Queenston, has been a public art museum since 1983. Situated in a large country home overlooking the Niagara River, the museum features exhibitions from the renowned art collection of Samuel E. Weir, as well as artworks on loan from Canadian and international collections.
The museum holds approximately 1,400 works in the permanent collection, including paintings, sculpture and decorative arts with a focus on historical Canadian art, but also contains European and American art. The collection contains works from some of Canada’s most significant artists: Tom Thomson, Emily Carr, the Group of Seven, Krieghoff, Kane, and Suzor-Coté.
RiverBrink presents a popular summer lecture series and a walking tour of Queenston.
As of 2012, we are now open during the winter, Wednesday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm, from November 1st to Victoria Day.
