You will have to fly to Abu Dhabi to see the new Louvre Museum but you could drive to the Remai if you had to do, it’s in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The Times annual article, which lists the top 52 places in the world to go, has Canada as number one because of our 150th anniversary celebrations.  In a companion piece on gallery and museum openings that are of interest to travelers, the Times calls the Remai a “splashy new museum” in a “surprising locale.” A spokesperson for Tourism Saskatoon says The Remai Modern, which is scheduled to open later this year, will bring in international travellers, especially for an exhibit of Picasso’s lino-cut collection and about two dozen of his ceramics.

The museum is named after Saskatoon philanthropist Ellen Remai who donated $30 million to the cause in 2011.  The new museum replaces Saskatoon’s old Mendel Art Gallery.
