  • Worth a visit to see contemporary art site of Manitoba and of Canada. But not surprising. Was an ongoing art exhibition Innuit.

  • Inuit art is exposed is superior. The exhibition also gives a historical and background parts. There are also some beautiful pieces of Canadian artists, which some have been revealed to me. The Europeans and the period furniture tables left me indifferent.

  • 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.
