Some impressive pieces very nicely displayed. Be warned, family pricing is odd. $30 "Family rate" for 2 adults and 2 kids, fine; but we came with 1 kid but were asked to pay $32! We were told this was common pricing in Vancouver, and that families only get a discount if they have 2 kids. The manager was kind enough to grant us an exception and charged us only $30.
Great hidden gem downtown. Bill Reid is truly historic figure in the culture of the Pacific Northwest. The museum has some beautiful artifacts and introduces you to Bill's life with videos and text. It's astonishing to see the influence one man has had to show the world the art and history of people that was nearly lost forever. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort.
What an amazing collection of art by Bill Reid - from childhood on. And an excellent video of a young woman talking about her connection with the First Nations. Don't miss this gallery if you are in Vancouver.
If you're interested about indigenous peoples art and culture then this is one place you should never miss. Bill Reid is a genius and his works speak for itself. Though the gallery is small it accounts and important part of the Haida art and culture. Which video installations it is so interesting to learn about the culture particularly the title culture witches very much connected to their ancestral roots. A must visit if you're interested in art.
Story and works of Bill Reid, notable Haida tribe artist are housed here. However, works of other First Nations artists also on display reflect the social and cultural issues faced by the people. Sacred space. Free to native people.
