Inside you'll have the opportunity to view a permanent collection of nearly 24,000 works, emphasising Manitoban and Canadian art. The gallery also holds the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. Visit the extensive in-house art library, home to more than 24,000 books. Finish with a meal on the penthouse level; the restaurant serves Mediterranean-inspired food.

  • 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.
  • Great gallery. Lots to see. Nice gift shop and they bring in exhibits so there is always something to see
  • 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.
