Welcome to RiverBrink, our remarkable art museum overlooking the Niagara River in the beautiful town of Queenston. We are all the fortunate beneficiaries of Samuel E. Weir, Q.C., who provided a legacy that includes his remarkable collection of art, artefacts, library, and country home. We are fortunate also to be inheritors of more than two hundred years of rich history and culture in Niagara-On-The-Lake. RiverBrink has many unusual and significant stories to share through our unique artistic and historical resources. Our changing exhibitions provide exceptional opportunities through art to encounter the ways in which Canada grew and developed to maturity. The experience of the exhibitions is expanded in several ways through our lecture series, tours, special events, and the Gift Shop.
What we can tell is, of course, only part of the story, but it is an important part, and we continue to work on introducing new visitors and welcoming those who return. We know that our members and repeat guests come to us because we have stimulated their interest and provided experiences to learn and broaden their understanding of art, Canadian art in particular, and Canada’s history. For the board members, volunteers and staff of RiverBrink this is exciting and rewarding work. We all hope you take pleasure and benefit from your time here and will return many times.
