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

Current exhibit (Nov. 2014) of Dali and others currently on loan from Lord Beaverbrook collection is absolutely suburb. Government of Manitoba should have taken the $200mC they spent on the Museum of Human Rights (which locals have dubbed the Museum of Human Wrongs) and acquired some new works for the WAG's permanent collection.

Took in the Salvador Dali exhibit - amazing. Strange. And amazing. Was also pleasantly surprised at the breadth of the permanent exhibits - a wonderful selection and a perfect way to while away a cold Winnipeg afternoon.

Best gallery in Winnipeg. Lots of exhibitions. Not a 'typical' museum as they host a wide variety of activities. For instance just found out that they host 'supper on the roof'. Looking forward to trying that next summer.

WAG offers thoughtful exhibits and permanent galleries. It is famous for its holdings of Inuit art, but at any given time you will not get to see most of it, at least for now. They have broken ground on a new Inuit art center.

We visit the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) a couple of times per year. Teen Boy and 10 year old boy find the Gallery as interesting as I do. The permanent gallery is not quite as exciting as some of the visiting ones, but the WAG really does bring some great things to Winnipeg. Our last visit was on Family Sunday... More

I have been to the art gallery several times and have found each experience to be mixed. This isn't a gallery you'd want to go to expecting consistent exhibits in terms of quality. One time I came and they had a rare collection of paintings, then the next, they only had a half gallery of stamps as the main "gallery"... More

I enjoyed the exhibitions of Dali art and paintings from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Both were professionally done and the free audio guide was excellent. Unfortunately the Inuit art collection was closed, but the museum shop had a nice collection of Inuit art for sale. On street parking just outside the museum was easily available. A very good regional art... More

The Dali exhibit was organized and interesting. When we entered the gift shop I notices some gentlemen with carvings at the back of the store. They were Inuit carvers who now live in Winnipeg, interesting to talk to them and their representatives. They had amazing art for sale. Store stayed open after 9 which was very nice of them as...
