Great Hall Windows Replacement
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the National Gallery of Canada’s building on Sussex Drive, which although still magnificent is now in need of some maintenance.
Between 12 February and mid-December 2013, the building will be undergoing some crucial repairs, including the replacement of all windows enclosing the Great Hall and the reconstruction of thirteen roof assemblies within the skylight.
All exhibition spaces and services will remain open and accessible for the duration of the repairs, with the one exception being the Café l’Entrée, which will close during the renovations.
Every attempt has been taken to minimize its impact on visitors; your patience and understanding are most appreciated.
