First off...it’s not the Metropolitain Museum or the Louvre or the Prado or any of those things. Rather it is some very nice bits of art housed in the beautiful Frank Gehry designed architecture. In addition there are the legendary Henry Moore plaster casts, a...More

There is a huge range of art housed in this airy & welcoming building. It’s great to see the contrast between a lot of the First Nation/Canadian art (which is itself very diverse) but often focuses on landscapes & the European art elsewhere in the...More

The Canadian art selection is amazing, and well curated. Afterwards all I wanted to do was read more about the Canadian Group of 7. The rest of the collection just wasn't there for the largest art gallery in the 4th biggest city in North America....More

We didn’t see even half of the space, but loved what we did see. The Kathe Kollwitz exhibit was powerful. The room of Moore plaster casts was impressive. Tip: you can exit and re-enter on your ticket within the day. Fantastic policy.

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.
