The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is named after Max Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook, who funded the building of the gallery. Beaverbrook had spent his childhood and youth in New Brunswick and after he became a wealthy press baron in England he made many gifts to the province. The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, which opened in 1959 when its founder was 80 years old, was to be the last of these gifts. The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is New Brunswick's officially designated provincial art gallery. Tues to Sat 10 am - 5 pm, Thurs till 9 pm; Sun noon - 5 pm. (Mon 10 am - 5 pm May - Sept only).
