Located less than 700 metres from the Marriott Niagara Falls Hotel Fallsview & Spa, the Chateau Park Museum – Art Centre is a classic stone work piece of grand architecture built in 1894.
Also known as the Mount Carmel Monastery, the property sits on over twelve acres of beautifully appointed and manicured grounds, containing trees, gardens and a number of statues.
Additionally, the property includes an on-site Art Centre featuring carefully curated works from well-known Canadian and International Artists.
And of course, would any Museum be complete without a gift shop? The ‘Boutique’ gift shop contains fine art reproductions, post-cards, art books, and additional items. Adjacent to the gift shop is a Café, featuring standard and gourmet coffees, sweets and sandwiches.
Photographers of all skill levels are welcome; photography is allowed throughout the property.
