Over priced and not a good selection of artwork on display. We were quite disappointed at the quality and the quantity of artwork.

Museum is around 15-20 min walk from the harbour and because of this does not get the same attention but it is a nice walk through a nice neighborhood. Small museum with some good Emily Carr pieces.

The Emily Carr exhibit was large and worth it. The rest of the gallery was sparse and had large rooms with not much on display.
