Art Museum Museum
Located in the heart of Downtown Vancouver, Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art 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 of Northwest Coast Art and other Vancouver attractions into our Vancouver tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Rudest receptionist - ruined the experience. We went last year and enjoyed the art and would have recommended the gallery for a quick visit when downtown. I work in tourism and was taking part in the tourism challenge today - we walked in and were immediately chastised for talking (before we had even hit the front desk), and were then told in the deepest of sarcastic tones that we could get a stamp for our tourism challenge if we helped with her 500 receipts and end of day accounting. Unbearably condescending and rude and no way to welcome anyone, whether they're a paying or complimentary visitor. Won't go back, won't recommend.
  • Amazing works on display, a touch small and the layout is quirky in parts due to physical space limitations.
  • This is a wonderful gallery dedicated to Bill Reid, true representation of Pacific Northwest First Nation's art.
  • Bill Reid's works are very unique and this place has a great collection. Everything from jewellery to totempoles to sketches. Worth visiting if in the area. It's a very small gallery and shouldn't take more than 20-40 mins.
  • Small gem located downtown Vancouver. Great way to appreciate Bill Reid’s beautiful art work. Also check for temporary exhibitions of contemporary Aboriginal Art of the Northwest Coast _ awesome!
