    The gentleman at the front desk was extremely kind and helpful. The art galleries were fantastic. The Picasso exhibit had fun interactive displays and I loved his quotes that were on the walls everywhere!

    Very doable museum. Not an overwhelming amount of art to do in an afternoon. Sounds like the new addition will be fantastic.

    Loved the enormous Picasso exhibit. Had a lovely Picasso inspired dinner in The Storm Restaurant.

    When I went in to the gallery I was expecting a small gallery with not much to offer, only to be pleasantly surprised at the most amazing collection of art that rivals any other city. The paintings and sculptures are magnificent and absolutely beautiful. Do yourself a favor and go here first when in the city.

Where to stay in Winnipeg

For easy access to entertainment, look north of Downtown to the hip Exchange District--here you'll find some of the city's most pleasant historical architecture, as well as its most happening bar scene. If you want to mingle with the city's hipsters, stay in the leafy riverfront suburb of Wolseley, where organic markets and "fair trade" cafes abound. If you're just planning to visit Winnipeg for a night or two, you can find a range of accommodations close to the airport.
