What a great location to spend a sunny afternoon! I love the sitting areas overlooking the river to digest and discuss the exhibitions, or to simply read and have a coffee. People go just to hang out. Stop into Shift for coffee and a scone or one of the daily desserts specials.

Amazing new art gallery in Saskatoon. Took students here for an afternoon tour and they loved it too. Great stop to visit in Saskatoon.

An amazing display of modern art in a spectacular building and setting on the riverbank in beautiful Saskatoon. Take a guided tour to get the highlights and then spend more time with your favourites...you will probably be surprised at the quality

I liked the stairs exhibit with all the lights, however the rest of the art peices were super boring. Super over priced for what should be a public exhibit.

Quite an eye opening experience. They have a special children entertainer performing on the Family Day who was a great artist. People visiting the place me included enjoyed ourselves a lot. And they also have a beautiful view to the river with coffee shop and souvernir shop.

I've been here twice now and would definitely go back again. Great place to take visiting family and friends. Have a great meal at Shift in the lobby of the Remai, and then take a gander at the many art collections and views of the river from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the South Saskatchewan River. Such a great addition to our city.

A place where you can let your mind wonder around. Lots of art pieces and just an amazing, soothing experience for the soul and mind. I love spending a few hours just taking in the view not just the art but also the the river and downtown. Very neat and clean, you are guaranteed a fun experience there.

Disappointed, actually. Higher expectations. Need for dedicated indigenous art display area/room/hall. As a taxpayer, there's a better way to profile our real community h

When my wife and our family went we only went on a free day, because we probably will never spend money to see it. Like we aren't necessarily art people, but we do like things that look good. And stuff like a bunch of old speaker guts hanging from a ceiling beside feathers and rocks that are also hanging from the ceiling, do not seem like art to us. As well as about 20 pages with just writing on them. They don't even say anything. It's just writing. My wife also really liked the concrete statue of a womans leg which had a fishnet stocking and a rubber Walmart flip flop on it. Very artsy... But don't get me wrong. There was one room with actual art, it was actual paintings that belonged to the Remai family. But seeing as that the price tag for building this place was so large. I'd expect a little better art.

It was unique and different from other usual gallery. I could say it is weird. But anyway I enjoyed it. Inside was so clean and I liked their lockers for the coast as well, they were so convenient.

Beautiful building. Disappointed in the artwork. Not my thing but maybe would be yours. It was I guess neat to view some of Picasso’s work. I can’t comment on the side restaurant as didn’t utilize it but it is nice to see one available. Having a room full of ping pong tables seemed odd to me in an art gallery. The gift shop was incredibly expensive. Overall, relieved that I went on a free admission day. I would have been more than sad otherwise.

The gallery inside is modern, stylish and well conceived. It offers an exceptional space for thought and exploration. I am looking forward to seeing what exhibits they bring through. Being understated is the gorgeous event and conference spaces and the added potential those bring. I can't say I am thrilled with the color they chose for the exterior but that is minor in the grand scope of things. Overall a exciting addition to our city.

Gift shop was great. Not sure about some of the installations but all were certainly entertaining and thought provoking.

Try to imagine Saskatoon without the Remai. It has become an iconic landmark. Already increasing the profile of this quaint city, many more will want to visit as its reputation grows, further cementing Saskatoon as a mini metropolis. For the future generation of the city, this gallery will be a hub of culture and art. Let's hope it continues to stay committed to giving back to the community in which it resides.

The building, location and art are wonderful. It was worth the wait. I hope that more can be done to provide additional days of free admission and to make it seem less like an institution only for people who are financially secure. I bought a two-year membership before it opened and am glad I did. The movies that are free with admission or membership are also a great feature of the Remai Modern.

What a nice addition to Saskatoon! The space is beautiful, with big windows that let in a ton of light. The exhibits were well organized and there was enough diversity in the art that there was something to suit different tastes. Love the kids craft area, too. Will for sure get a membership!

This is a wonderful art museum! A gem in the rough! The staff is extremely friendly and go above and beyond to ensure a insightful, easy and full experience! It is a lot to take in for one trip so plan to get a membership, which is super cheap for all the perks that come with it! There is a excellent restaurant on the ground floor that also serves coffee and has saskatoon’s only patio on the river! I look forward to many more visits to this museum.

The Remai Modern Gallery is an immeasurable treasure that will become more so, as time passes. The people of Saskatoon should be proud of this world-class facility given our modest population size in comparison to other cities across the continents. I thank the generous donors and the vision of the Remai foundation for creating a wondrous light-filled space that all can enjoy for a lifetime. Art is in the eye and heart of the beholder, but if you don't look, you won't know what speaks to you. Cast off the belief that you have to like everything that you see, for I have been to many different galleries over the years and some stuff I think is simply meaningless to me-no matter what it's worth. On the other hand, many a piece has caused me to pause and wonder at the genius and the beauty that a fellow human has created. Inspiration, humility and a sense of contentment can be found in art as well as their opposites; find what stirs your emotions at the Remai Modern and any other Gallery you come across and you will find a piece of yourself you never knew you had. Give it a visit and see what it is all about. I recommend it.

What a beautiful place! The open concept makes it feel warm, inviting, and spacious. It offers areas to reflect, relax, eat, and converse with friends. It also has one of the largest Picasso collections, which is amazing in itself. I look forward to my next visit.

Complimentary lockers and audio guides. Some galleries were "in transition," so the entry fees were discounted. Many Canadian contemporary artists plus Picasso works.

Attended the opening weekend to see the building. Very disappointed in the building design and layout. No attempt to have a design that blends into or enhances the beautiful riverbank setting. While the natural lighting inside the building was very bright, I found the building itself to be sterile and cold. Nothing inside connected to the riverbank setting, and not even a potted plant to bring some naturalness inside. There are many large windows overlooking the riverbank, but most are covered by a dull brown metallic grating, so the viewer must squint through holes to see the fantastic views. One of the only windows NOT covered by the "cheese grater" covering was on the main stairwell to the second floor. That window provides a wonderful view of the side of the freeway bridge. The sterile feeling and lack of connection to the natural riverbank area does, I guess reflect the intent of most modern art, which seems to want to separate art from the natural world. On that part, this new gallery excels. It is truly "the cheese grater on the river".

I highly recommend the interactive audio tour for a date night. It is very well done and brings so much insight into the art and museum. Bring your kids on Saturday or Sunday for activities. The family pass is a no brainer as well. Saskatoon is lucky to have this place.

Went to Saskatoon to see the new art gallery. Very disappointed compared to what I remember of the old Mendel Art Gallery. Beautiful building but some of the art literally looked like garbage. And some pieces of art - things my kids could have done better at the age of three. Did see a lone painting by the group of seven painter which beautiful. Saw a couple more things I liked too but overall didn't like the present exhibits. I wish I had gone to the zoo instead with my 20 year old son. He enjoys art too. The best thing is that we were able to laugh a lot that day at some pretty poor excuses for art work. Cheers!

Had a great tour guided by "David", he is very knowledgeable and explains the art very well! I'm not an arts person but he explained the meaning behind a lot of the pieces which was great. We became members thanks to this!

Beautiful building w giant windows let in lots of sunlight & great river view -ideal for a plant conservatory & landscape art. Too bad its modern art (chicken wire on a trash can = $3 million piece). Security everywhere to make sure u don't touch the linoleum Picasso copy or the old rubber boot on a conveyor belt. :(

Beautiful building in a gorgeous location by the river. The visit started off nice with some wonderful pieces donated by the Mendel family and some Picasso prints that were interesting. Then it went downhill from there. Hated the main exhibit. Definately not my kind of "art".

Apparently if you can put a meaning behind any old piece of junk, suddenly it is art. There are some actual appreciable pieces of art, but too much "interpreted" art.
