  • It was a nice side trip and a great space. It's very small and focuses only on his work and life. It was about 10$ USD per person. It's in downtown area.  more »

  • 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!
  • I loved this gallery. It's quite nice seeing Bill Reid's sculptures and jewelry. It's nice that they have multimedia stuff, like videos and information panels to learn about each piece. I think it's an interesting and cool gallery to visit!
  • It's okay; their indigenous art collection is somewhat extensive but will be a little boring if you're someone who don't particularly enjoy this type of artwork.
  • Informative and interesting collection of some of Bill Reid's work.
