Many things to see here, but one gallery was empty (setting up). That was my only gripe. The price was very fair, and the parking across the street was helpful.

Right in the heart of downtown Winnipeg...fantastic exhibits and usually of the revolving nature so things change after a couple of months or so....so a number of different exhibits can be viewed every year.

I will admit that I am not the most artsy person, however we attended to the WAG on a couple of occasions for some special displays....the works of Norman Rockwell and a tour of various animations artists....both were excellent events with outstanding displays....seeing true works of Norman Rockwell was awe inspiring...his talent and history are second to none....One of my...

Museum is smallish, but collection is very interesting. Good permanent collection of Inuit art. The movie about time is somehow one of the fascinating exhibits I have ever seen. It is movie clips that show clocks and runs in actual time over 24 hours. Sounds uninteresting, but we sat for over 30 minutes without being bored.

I'm sure it's great in the summer too, but when it's -24C outside it was very very welcoming. The inuit art collection is outstanding. So was the 24 hour montage of film clips where the time on the watches and clocks shwn in each clip matched the actual time - very clever and entertaining. We also had a very good... More

Spent a lovely couple of hours wandering. They had a great exhibition on about time. A movie that goes through 24 hours of time clips. Very good

We took our two girls (8 and 12) to the Winnipeg Art Gallery over Easter and had the place practically to ourselves! The Arctic exhibit was stunning and the room with the 360 degrees of surround sound of choral voices was an experience that none of us will ever forget!!! Our girls have a wonderful appreciation of the arts thanks... More

The museum is small, but has some truly incredible art from the Intuit Native People. Other than one tour going through, the museum was quiet and I was not at all rushed. I could take my time appreciating each piece, if I so desired. The visiting exhibit was "The Clock" by Christian Marclay. It was fantastic. There are other art... More

I can't help but compare this to smaller galleries in Regina and Saskatoon which charge no admission. We paid $28 for a family admission here, which is fine realizing that we are contributing to the arts - except that we felt overall that in comparison to the "free" galleries there was not much more on offer. There were some light... More
