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

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.

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

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
