Discover the power of art on your next trip to Vancouver with a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery, one of North America’s most exciting and innovative visual arts institutions. Works by renowned Canadian Modernist painter Emily Carr are often on view as well as ground-breaking exhibitions and selections from the permanent collection. Open 7 days a week, a visit to the Gallery is an opportunity to meditate on more than a century's worth of Canadian and international art, from historical masters to contemporary visionaries. Enhance your experience by attending one of the Gallery’s engaging special events, educational tours or programs designed for families, youth and art enthusiasts of all ages. Weekly Family Programs are featured every Sunday and are free for children 12 and under. Spend time in the Gallery Store; a locals’ favorite for one-of-a kind-gifts or refuel in the Gallery Cafe; an eatery with a reputation for great food and with one of Vancouver’s best outdoor patios.

I love visiting art galleries when travelling so was really looking forward to coming here. Unfortunately it had a small number of exhibits, none of which were that exciting, so was pretty disappointed.

Visited a week ago and unimpressed with the exhibits. Hoping for more on each floor but left disappointed and feeling overcharged. If this is the best Canadian art can offer I'm really glad we didn't visit any museums!
