The city of Saskatoon built a big stack of boxes calling it the new art gallery but what a waste of money. The previous location was wonderful,I will never set foot in the new reime center or whatever its called.This existing conservatory is a great place to wonder around and see what is there.Best part is the LOCATION.
The art gallery is under renovation as mentioned. We drove out to this conservatory and it is literally probably about the size of an apartment - it takes perhaps a few minutes to walk the circular loop around the perimeter. A little disappointing, some pretty flowers by most of them are ornamentals in pots. You could see more plants walking... 更多
How can you go wrong with a free art gallery? There's also an atrium that has some lovely tropical plants, hot & humid year round!

Sadly, the Mendel is no more. Its being replaced by a fancy new place further up the river. The Conservatory was always a favourite Winter respite from the cold and it had many and varied exhibitions over the years. Its sad to see it go but progress marches on.
This is a world class museum, located in a small Canadian city. We have visited galleries all over the world and this is a surprising treat! The conservatory is lovely!
I had such a good time looking at everything here, I certainly want to visit again. They say the displays change often so always something different to see.
