Winnipeg Art Gallery represents a public art gallery in the heart of the city; it claims the title of sixth largest gallery in Canada. The grey façade adopts a minimalist and contemporary design, forming a triangle from a bird’s-eye view. 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. Put Winnipeg Art Gallery into our Manitoba vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Small but enjoyable gallery. Outdoor sculpture garden one of the highlights. You couldn't spend the whole day here but it is a fun place to spend a few hours and has a great gift shop.

  • 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.
  • Exhibition is not so big but inuit skulptures got me impressed
  • It's a decently large art gallery, and the collection itself is quite big so the displays change frequently. They host a lot of interesting events too. There's a restaurant on the top floor which can be booked for special occasions as can the main hall on the first.
  • Good display of art for Winnipeg. Enjoy the inuit art, and exhibit always change.
  • The gallery has an excellent permanent collection and a really interesting array of rotating exhibits come through. Really looking forward to seeing the Inuit collection displayed furthur!
