We had a private curator-led tour at the Bill Reid Gallery and Beth Carter was an excellent guide. She talked about the newly renovated gallery and the "Interface" exhibition by Meghann o`Brien. We truly enjoyed our visit and learned so much. Worth visiting for sure!

Stunning works of museum quality work. The outside of the building is gorgeous within a beautiful complex. The inside of the gallery is designed to minimize distractions and focus on the art. There is a fee to get into the gallery.

This gallery has art and jewelry created by Bill Reid, but also interesting displays his life, on native textiles, on tattoo traditions, all in a lovely space. The gift shop has jewelry art for sale, as well as books and other gift items.

nights are the most popular and lively, with young
revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
the party going until late. Granville Street, being
