It reminds me of a cold- era war building. Exhibits are so far away it's annoying walking between them. Go once to say you have been but not sure I would even go back.

The exhibit was well arranged with an audio recording for many of the collections. It took about an hour to visit the 8 theme galleries. As there was not a large crowd attending the event, you could take as much time as you wanted viewing the exhibits. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Table Restaurant on the Penthouse level...

I found my first visit at the WAG to be a moving experience. It was quiet and I am not sure if we had seen others there or not. I want to see many of the pieces I saw again and now, I wonder why it took me so long to go there.

We spent a couple of hours here seeing the museum. It is a good representation of Canadian artists and also has some traditional European Art. We enjoyed the special exhibit that was about the Greek gods.

This is an excellent show at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. The Art Gallery is first class. The architecture of the building is stunning. The gift shop offers a nice range of products.

While off work for a week's vacation, I took my daughter to the WAG to take in Olympus, the Greco Roman collections from Berlin. My daughter has been wanting to go since it came in April. The statues and other pieces are beautifully displayed and the audio tour adds extra information than is displayed on the wall plaques. There are... More

Many places to have a picnic under sheltered places with tables. Nice to walk and enjoy the flower gardens or take in a show at the Rainbow Stage

When my husband and I visited the WAG, there was a traveling exhibit of Grecco-Roman statues and pieces from Europe. We were incredibly fortunate to see these pieces and enjoyed the audio tour. The permanent collection of art seemed to consist largely of sculptures by First Nation's artists and were made of a variety of natural materials. Fewer of the... More

The pieces that were on display were beautiful, but unfortunately there weren't too many pieces to see. I would have loved to see more of the Inuit Art, but unfortunately there weren't too many pieces out when I saw it. I heard great things about the Olympus exhibit but unfortunately it was at an additional cost to the museum entrance... More
