Create an itinerary including Bill Reid Gallery
Located in the heart of Downtown Vancouver, Bill Reid Gallery is Northwest Canada’s only gallery dedicated to contemporary indigenous art. Appreciate the striking pieces on display at the museum, which was opened in 2008 and named after Haida artist Bill Reid, who was a goldsmith, carver, sculptor, writer, and spokesman. Alongside indigenous art, the gallery also houses Reid’s gold and silvery jewelry, sculptures made from bronze and stone, and a full-scale totem pole. Stop by the gift shop, where you can browse through aboriginal art, finely crafted jewelry, and accessories and giftware. Put Bill Reid Gallery into our Vancouver journey builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Vancouver.

  • The gallery is not huge - you can visit and be out in an hour, but the art pieces in it are wonderful. Very nice staff greeted us upon arrival, and you are free to roam and look as long as you...

  • Well worth a visit. Fascinating works and a very good gift shop as well. Right in the center of Vancouver.

  • 2 small levels of excellent west coast indigenous art - paintings, sculpture, jewellery, craft - centred around legendary artist Bill Reid but also including other masters. Nice gift shop. Hosts many events (Heart of the City, craft market, talks...)
  • This man has always fascinated me, and I've collected him for over a decade. Finally I was able to travel & visit his gallery. Amazing ! So diverse and well laid out. My only complaint is it's too small. I studied each item & finished it all in 3 hours. Recommended!
  • Take a short break from the city to visit this small gallery. Relax and enjoy the experience. An oasis of calm in the heart of the downtown area. The exhibits are beautiful
  • Thank you for hosting our school trip from South Hill Education Centre. Many of my students are from different cultures and countries. They enjoyed learning about Bill Reid, his artistic journey, and Haida culture and art. The gallery is beautifully laid out, and there are other exhibits from artists who are influenced by Reid's work. Our wonderful tour guide, Sara, (and Toonasa in the summer) taught us so much!
  • Great gallery of his different works and stories behind them. It was also a good to see that the gallery also showcased other artists for the indigenous people and their communities. Easy spot to get to right in the heart of the city. He was a master of the art mediums that he worked with. Glad we visited while we were in Vancouver.
