4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful place, but quite small so generally a quick visit.
