A good experience to discover art in Canada especially the works of women artists. You can learn a lot about their life and works during the early 20th century, in addition to enjoying watching such original beautiful paintings, photos, and sculptures. Also, the digital art exhibition on the second floor is very unique and joyful. The price for adults is around 29 Canadian dollars which is a little pricey for this museum because it is not such a huge museum. The good news is free admission for kids and seniors that encourage families to bring their children to explore the world of art. Generally, it is a good experience in Vancouver for tourists and art fans.
The Vancouver Art Gallery is DEFINITELY NOT the best art gallery in the world. Not even close. The collection is limited and new exhibits are rarely attention grabbing. But if you keep that in mind, visiting can still be a fun experience. Lots of their artwork is Canadian, so the landscape pieces are beautiful. The Indigenous artwork also provides a unique contrast to most world-class galleries, because it provides a break from Euro-centric art. It’s a new perspective to explore through art. If you’re a tourist, I’d skip this spot. As a local, it’s worth seeing. There’s lots of stories to see here, and a big portion are local. Don’t bring your kids though. There is a designated section for children, but lots of the art is graphic. Do bring your camera. The gallery makes a good place for pictures.
This is where art exhibition, social protest, filming, street busking, lunch break, and many more events take place. This beautiful and graceful heritage building is in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. My family enjoyed the exhibition today. It’s also a good spot for some photos.
really enjoyed the Yoko Ono exhibit here. Went on a Tuesday night where it was entry by donation and that worked out nicely as I only had about an hour or so to go through it all. Very nicely laid out and so much information about the pair. I loved how interactive the exhibit was and it allowed you to think and be creative too! If I had more time I would have checked out the other two floors. I will do that on my next visit for sure
WOW!!! What an awesome place. The best is to check it out on a Tuesday evening. Entrance on donation. Exceptional displays and right now everything about John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Love the Indigenous focus. #vancouverartgallery
