I was really disappointed paying $24 for a visit, where there's not a whole lot to see. There are some really good exhibits, but they need more diversity and more art work. They also need a permanent collection. Overall, I won't recommend it. Maybe check the exists first. When I went there they had one and half floor open our... More

I visited the Art Gallery on a very rainy cold day in March. There seems to be a lot of those at that time of year. The Exhibit from Susan Point was wonderful. She seems prolific with any art form including, jewelry, woodwork, glass work, screen printing, and sculpture. It was amazing to see her range. Her exhibit focuses on... More

This was my third visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery and the quality of the space and exhibitions is always very high. We were lucky enough to see the Susan Point: Spindle Whorl. An exhibition showcasing a prolific amount of work by an incredibly talented woman, across multiple mediums. We also had time to head upstairs, which was being renovated... More

Collection largely uninteresting... mixed bag of strange stuff. Rather uninspiring. We seen better art in the BC restaurants. You gotta do better... there is great art out there... just not in this museum. Save your money...

I come from New Zealand.....The main reason I went to the Art Gallery was to see Emily Carr and the Group of 7....well they did have Emily Carr up (loved seeing her work) but NO group of 7....really disappointing! And the reason they gave "We don't have the space" You need to keep Carr and the Group of 7 up... More

Enjoyed my time at the museum with its variety of exhibitions although the quality of the art works, other than those in the Susan Point show, were pretty average. The $24 entrance is expensive for the quality.

The VAG is a great place to take guests or a great way to get lost in your own city. It never ceases to amaze me in the caliber of exhibits and the beauty of the building.

I visited the Art Gallery on a rainy day and loved it. The Susan Point exhibit was extensive. I found several lovely gifts in the museum shop too. Birthdays and Christmas were unexpectedly taken care of- so many lovely things to look at and buy.

This is a very nice gallery, and perfect for a cold/rainy day! The gallery features four levels of exhibits, all of which are well-presented, and easy to follow. Know going into this that this is more a modern art type of gallery, so you're not going to see more traditional/classical pieces, but still very nice installations.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
