Top ways to experience Bill Reid Gallery Of Northwest Coast Art and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday 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 mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
How to get there

On of the best galleries I went to, I highly recommend visiting it. It’s a very unique and personal experience. Loved how it higlighted the impact and importance of first tribes in the BC history.

This was a very nice gallery. It is small but it contains a lot of things that on their own are beautiful or thought provoking, and they are all displayed in interesting ways in a beautiful space.

Nice Little Gallery & Museum to while away an hour or so in Vancouver Downtown. Very interesting background about familiar art and the artist who created it.

Although the place is called a gallery, it's really a small museum dedicated to the works of a major indigenous artist. The art is diverse (jewelry to large sculpture), beautiful, and nicely displayed and explained. A fine place to visit and learn. The space also shows the work of other indigenous artists inspired by Bill Reid.

(A tip: The gallery isn't visible from the street; you think you've arrived at the designated address, but then you need to go up some steps.)

This is a very useful but small gallery. It shows a very under-served people that need to have the spotlight shone on them. I very much appreciated the works shown in this gallery and wished it was larger.

This is a unique gallery to learn more about First Nations art and culture, which is cool. It is quite small, so you don't need to spend too much time here. Many of the sculptures and totems are especially impressive.

This gallery was on my list of things to visit, we walked by it and I said I need to see this. The architecture is stunning, as well as the way items are exhibited. It was an engaging collection.
We both thoroughly enjoyed it.

The gallery is not huge - you can visit and be out in an hour, but the art pieces in it are wonderful. Very nice staff greeted us upon arrival, and you are free to roam and look as long as you like.

Well worth a visit. Fascinating works and a very good gift shop as well. Right in the center of Vancouver.

I’ve wanted to come here for years and finally had the chance. If you aren’t blown away by the energy, creativity and skill I’m not really sure what to say. If you don’t know much about Bill Reid, this is a great place to start. Other artists’ work is featured as well and I appreciated seeing the beadwork pieces, which I’m always in awe of. Take a moment to go through the gift shop, one of the few places I’ve seen outside Haida Gwaii where you can purchase authentic argillite pieces.
