From Canada’s largest collection of beloved artist Emily Carr’s work, to ever-changing world-class exhibitions in a stunning neo-classical heritage building, the Vancouver Art Gallery offers the city’s top cultural experience. Welcoming millions of visitors in its 75-year history, the Gallery is internationally recognized for its contemporary and historic exhibition program. Engaging public and private tours, interactive programs for all ages, art workshops and multi-lingual guides are available.
The Gallery Café (named one of Vancouver’s top outdoor dining patio spots by Vancouver Magazine), a to-die-for Gallery Store with smart, eclectic gifts, a convenient group drop-off area and the City’s most charming spaces for receptions and events make the Vancouver Art Gallery a “must-visit” and an integral part of the Vancouver experience.
The Vancouver Art Gallery tour guides (called Animateurs) receive many accolades for their amazing ability to present a wide range of ideas related to the exhibitions in a coherent and understandable manner.
