About Remai Modern
Remai Modern presents and collects local and international modern and contemporary art that connects, inspires, and challenges diverse audiences through equitable and accessible programs. The museum’s mission is to be a welcoming and inclusive public gathering place where we recognize the past, engage with the present, and envision new futures together through art.

Remai Modern opened in Saskatoon’s River Landing district on October 21, 2017. The museum is named for its lead patron, Ellen Remai, whose extraordinary support through the Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation has made an indelible impact on the museum and its visitors, including the move to admission by donation in October 2022. In 2023, the museum welcomed more than 200,000 people, marking a record-breaking year for the museum and more than doubling visitation over the previous year. People visit Remai Modern to share in the transformative power of art and to make memories in one of the city’s most spectacular spaces.

The building includes multiple gallery spaces across three floors, an expansive hands-on learning space, a 150-seat theatre, a restaurant, outdoor terraces, and rooms with stunning views of the nearby South Saskatchewan River. The museum provides audiences with opportunities to connect with extraordinary modern and contemporary art that prompts dialogues, creates new experiences, and tells overlooked and impactful stories.
