A fantastic mid afternoon experience. We had to take in the Dali exhibit and it did not disappoint! The WAG continues to bring in some great artists and we look forward to seeing more in the future!

I was disappointed with the art gallery. So run down. The ceiling was leaking and there were two buckets placed underneath the leaks to catch the water. The leak was near two displays which if I was the artist whose work was on display beside a leaking ceiling I would be appalled to see that my artwork was not moved... More

Love the WAG. Thoughtful curation. I had the good fortune of seeing the Group of 7 Native Indian art as well as some pieces commemorating the opening of the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. The selection and positioning of the art pieces in this quietly assured building makes a visit to the WAG truly pleasurable. I miss the WAG.

Most recently visited their Dali exhibit but am more appreciative of their ability to bring in some of the other great Masters of the art world. Their current exhibit of Inuit carvings is also a great way to see works usually only seen if visiting the home villages of the artists in the North. Good value for the admission price... More

Went to see the Dali exhibit. The gallery is awesome and reasonably priced. Lots of great exhibits. Keep aside at least 4 hrs. One can even buy admission along with brunch on the roof top. Guided tours are available and the audio tour is very informative.

I haven't been to many art galleries but it seemed a bit pricey compared to most museums. I did enjoy many of the pieces. Next time I will be more choosey about what exhibit is being highlighted

Good gallery. The gallery was open on New Years Day 2015 which was a nice surprise so we checked it out. The exhibits were solid when we were there, and it's a pretty cool building.

Went to a concert on the roof of the WAG in the summer. Food was ok but band was good and nice view. Different kind of evening and you could walk around and view the art and other things there. Very nice

This is a small but pretty museum. It looks like it has lots of room to grow, but I'd be concerned about visiting it when I wasn't sure what was there, since most of the space seemed to be dedicated to the temporary exhibits. It may be great the rest of the year -- I don't know, since I ony... More

I'm not big on cultural attractions but every once in awhile you just follow along with your spouse, well the Dali Show is great, we had a guided tour (which in hindsight) was even more beneficial as our guide provide very interesting insights not only to the artwork but also to the artists life and various idiosyncrasies. We both enjoyed... More
