Discover the power of art on your next trip to Vancouver with a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery, one of North America’s most exciting and innovative visual arts institutions. Works by renowned Canadian Modernist painter Emily Carr are often on...more
First: it's $20 to enter. Pretty steep in my opinion. The best part of the exhibit was a museum style history of cottages. I think a couple of years ago they did an exhibit on hotels. This is not art. This is architecture, and the...More

Hello Michael M,
Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. As an art institute, we get a variety of feedback to our exhibitions and each viewpoint is important to us. Your comments will be shared with our team and included with all...More
I enjoyed the exhibit on the top floor about Emily Carr, a preeminent Canadian artist of the early 20th century. The other exhibits, with the exception of the David Milne exhibit, were overall less interesting. It is important to note that although the Vancouver Art...More
We visited on a Sunday afternoon. Great small museum, terrific exhibit of David Milne works, very well curated. There wasn't a lot else to see (several small exhibits), but the Milne alone was worth the trip and the entrance fee.
A superb gallery both for permanent and temporary exhibitions, with periodical guided tours and a top quality offer of items at the museum's shop. Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver in a historical building.
Before 5 pm Tuesday evenings the queue forms to allow donation entry( $5 seemed to be acceptable). Wanted to check out the Emily Carr paintings mentioned in all the guide books. Found them depressing. Enjoyed the David Milne paintings. Art Gallery seems to have mainly...More
This is a very nice, smallish museum building, in a great location, with a nice giftshop, and no permanent collection. That's a plus and a minus.
First, the building is very nice. The exterior is neoclassical. The inside is spacious, well organized, and spotlessly clean....More
For the expensive admission fee it was a struggle to make the whole visit last more than 90 minutes. We were not impressed that there was only one person operating the till, which meant the queue moved very slowly.
There was a limited selection of...More
Only shows exhibitions - does not show a permanent collection - i was hoping to see some works by The Seven etc but had to make do with what was on sale as cards and calendars .
Exhibition of some Emily Carr forest pictures associated...More
I love visiting art galleries when travelling so was really looking forward to coming here. Unfortunately it had a small number of exhibits, none of which were that exciting, so was pretty disappointed.
Every Tuesday evening the art gallery offers a pay by donation admission rate. It is extremely popular and guests start to line up 30-45 minutes in advance. By the time we left the queue wrapped down Hornby street.
Regardless of the exhibit, my sole purpose...More
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also
popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
There are special exhibits that merit that price. I'd you go on line you can purchase tickets (Groupon) for $19. Also note there are "by donation" admission. Schedule your date to visit so you can maximize your gallery... More
There are special exhibits that merit that price. I'd you go on line you can purchase tickets (Groupon) for $19. Also note there are "by donation" admission. Schedule your date to visit so you can maximize your gallery tour. I have always enjoyed my visits to the Gallery. And I have visited so many internationally..."world-class" ones as well. VAG needs improvement in curating, but that requires money...hope that answers your question.
