Choice of photographs
If the entrance is "seldom used" followed by a lesser used fire escape, why is this the most prominent photograph in the article?
Changes "would destroy several galleries"
This seem POV, and is certainly unclear. What is actually meant? That several exhibition chambers would be removed, I presume. But would new ones be provided? Would the items there go into storage or be distributed into other rooms? Is there anything special about those chambers? Mr. Jones 10:55, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Some of the information and all of the visible photographs of the AGO are outdated. There could be more information about the many galleries as well.
There is not much information on this site and I would like to see someone come on and place more information on here because I myself am not very good at putting information on sites and what to put on them. If I was to think of going to this gallery I would not know much about it before I got there and may not even want to go. 22.214.171.124 21:24, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
10th largest art museum in North America?
The reference given for this () doesn't seem to support the 10th largest claim. (If anything, I would guess the AGO is now higher up the list.) Can anyone explain? Am I missing something? Robertbyrne (talk) 18:59, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
- No response, so I have removed the 10th largest claim. If you have a good reference, please put a reference to the relative size ranking (North America or otherwise) back into the article. Robertbyrne (talk) 05:49, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
The article keeps expanding (good), but the expansions do not appear to be sourced in accordance with WP:V and WP:OR (bad). The "Transformation AGO" is the only section to be meaningfully referenced. Presumably, sections such as "History" and "Permanent Collection" would not be that difficult to appropriately reference. If I find time in the next few months, I will take a crack at adding references to those sections that are devoid of cites. In the meantime, to anyone expanding article, please add references as you go. Thanks. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 17:38, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
- Why don't you draw it to the attention of the contributor who has added the information. I have noticed a slight lack of Wikipedia awareness in other edits and they may benefit from mentoring. As a newbie they also may not have this on a watch list. Secondarywaltz (talk) 20:58, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
