Salvador Dali exhibit

Enjoyed all the art that was on display. Very happy I was able to take in the Dali exhibit on my visit to Winnipeg.

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

Beautifully curated and wide variety of pieces. Free Audio tour is very helpful. Volunteer student provided excellent overview of highlights. Was not arduous so there was time and energy to explore on your own. Worth the premium over basic entry fee

While in town for a conference we were intrigued by their “Olympus: The Greco-Roman Collections of Berlin” exhibition. It had 160 classical antiquities (7th century BC to 2nd century AD) – statues, pottery, friezes, bronzes and jewelry from Berlin’s national museums. Worth the price of admission. We then viewed the Inuit Art, Photography and Decorative Ceramics galleries. There is a... More

The WAG claims to have 14,000 pieces of Inuit art. About 30 are on display. While the 30 pieces were very interesting, I would have liked to have seen at least a few hundred more. The rest of the art was mediocre. Not worth the money.

The permanent collection is excellent and there is always interesting and stimulating exhibits. They also have one of the BEST collections of Inuit and Aboriginal Art.

A very good art gallery with featured exhibits and a top notch Inuit collection! A wonderful restaurant with a rooftop space! A lovely gift shop on the main floor! A theatre with many programs being offered! Another reason to be proud of Winnieg!
