The Olympus Exhibition is excellent - stunning sculptures and artifacts with a free audio guide for those who want to know more about the pieces displayed. The LEGO sculptures are great for kids and there is an... More

The WAG is a stark but impressive modern building. When we visited there was a traveling exhibit on Greek and Roman Gods. I was hoping to see more of the Inuit collection they talk about on their website. The small permanent collection of paintings and furniture are fine, but seem a bit disjointed.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. A good selection and variety of art. Excellent gift shop. The cafe on the top floor is good, just very slow service.

Winnipeg Art Gallery continues to have excellent exhibitions - On my most recent visit, this past month, was fortunate to see some paintings by our awesome Canadian artists=The Group of Seven. Be sure and check out the Gallery gift shop-which often features copies of artists work currently on display as well as many many other wonderful pieces of pottery, jewellry,etc,etc.

Winnipeg's art gallery has a great collection. The permanent display is fascinating, and there is always something good on rotation as well! Highly recommend a visit if you can make it.

It is just amazing! There are new exhibits all the time, so it is never the same experience. When I took my kids, there was an actual Van Gogh on display! It was excellent, and totally worth the trip

If you want to understand a changing culture and see beautiful creations at the same time, this is the place to be. Soon the art museum will start construction on a a building exclusively... More

Olympus exhibit was very educational. Set up nicely. We enjoyed seeing all the ancient statues and artifacts. We were amazed at the beautiful detail in the statues. A good day.

fabulous by international standards. I was really impressed by the site and quality of the Olympic show.They should advertise this as a museum for greater interest. Th "Aboriginal" art was most amazing.
