Vancouver Art Gallery

Join a guided tour of Vancouver’s major art institution to see modernist landscapes and photo exhibits. Learn about the region’s important art movements along the way.

Vancouver Art Gallery is among the largest and most eclectic museums of its kind in British Columbia. Its vast collection contains more than 10,000 works and is forever expanding and evolving, with a primary focus on regional and national talent.

Admire 19th- and 20th-century landscapes, including work by the Canadian modernists Emily Carr and Lawren Harris. The museum contains the largest array of paintings by Carr in the world.

Note the shift to photo-based works in the 21st century. Learn about the Vancouver school of photoconceptualism, a movement which is highlighted at the gallery.

Take a guided tour of the museum to learn about the societal implications of the works. Ask the experienced docents about the gallery and its displays. The museum offers several types of guided visits, including school groups, a private breakfast and the Before Hours Exhibition Tours.

Learn about the gallery itself, which was founded in 1931. It is based in the neoclassical building of the city’s former courthouse. Admire the ornate features of its façade, which has ionic columns, a central dome and a pediment. Follow the underground passage of Robson Square to reach a pleasant plaza with restaurants.

Many temporary exhibitions visit the gallery and complement the permanent collection. Purchase art books, posters, jewelry and other items from the gallery store. Take a break from the art with lunch at the on-site café, which has a picturesque patio, vibrant floral arrangements and a range of culinary treats on the menu.

The gallery is closed on Christmas and New Year’s. There is an entry fee, with discounts for children, students, seniors and families. Gallery members and toddlers enter for free.

The Vancouver Art Gallery is situated right in the heart of the city. Ride the SkyTrain to Vancouver City Centre Station, which is opposite the gallery. Plenty of bus stops line the surrounding roads and street parking is available for a fee in the area. Visit nearby attractions, such as the Christ Church Cathedral and the Commodore Ballroom.
