  • My wife and i decided to go to the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) on friday March 31st. We had not been there in a long time. There was no special art showing. I know it is spring in Winnipeg but the walk...  more »
  • Went there for a school trip to the exhibit about Ancient Greece. Great art, the guides were well informed. The parts of the exhibits that were made out of Lego were probably my favourite.  more »
  • Reserve time for one or two visits every time I go to Winnipeg. The highlight for the inuit culture is a constant, and is expressed in renewed thematic exhibitions always well cared for. There are also guided tours, workshops and exhibitions on other matters. The infaltável gift shop is Rico ... and not cheap. I think it was called ' Art Museum ' would be more inviting than ' Art Gallery '.

  • Amazing building. I perform quite often for events there and the food is excellent, the service is great and the venue it's self is simply stunning. Shane The DJ of Topps Music Service
  • Great permanent galleries and an impressive collection of Nunavut art. They always have interesting travelling exhibits as well, and the gift shop is a great place to do your Christmas shopping!
  • Very nice art gallery, I really like the roof top patio. Only wish parking was a little easier!
  • Always has awesome exhibits. Cheap admission. Worth the trip. Has a modern exterior. The buhler centre across the street has a stellas if youre hungry.
  • The WAG often advertises their featured exhibit which changes annually, but one of the great gems that's often overlooked is there regular gallery featuring works of art by many local, national, and international artists that have been donated to the Gallery over the years. It was in the regular gallery I discovered my love for paintings by Lawren Harris. Another unique part of WAG is the ability to rent Paintings. I hope to try it out some time.
