“Bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

After the "Manitoba Museum' I expected a lot from the art gallery. Must say I was a bit disappointed.

The art that was there was engaging but I found the museum very small and the range limited. I thought I had a missed a floor at one stage.

It may appeal to those with stronger and more specific art appreciation leanings than myself but I left feeling like it was an non-event.

Amazing new shows every time you visit. The gift shop has beautiful gift at reasonable prices. The largest collection of Inuit sculptures and art. The building itself is one of the nicest in Canad as an art gallery. A worthwhile collection of contemporary art. Make sure you visit the Gallery when visiting Winnipeg.

“Great Art gallery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Many things to see here, but one gallery was empty (setting up). That was my only gripe. The price was very fair, and the parking across the street was helpful.

Right in the heart of downtown Winnipeg...fantastic exhibits and usually of the revolving nature so things change after a couple of months or so....so a number of different exhibits can be viewed every year.
