About Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver
The Vancouver Art Gallery is the 5th largest art gallery in Canada and has a collection of 11,000 artworks including creations of British Columbian artists Emily Carr, Jeff Wall and Marc Chagall among others. Seeing the neoclassical courthouse that adds to the ambience of the gallery, is an added perk while the uber-cool events held here including the FUSE event that combines a modern nightclub amidst the artsy gallery, is something no traveler must miss!
End the visit with a quick bite at the café.

Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver Reviews
Have been here once with a friend. It was such a memorable experience. For those who are very passionate about art, I'd recommend spending at least 3 hours to explore :) They have very detailed description for every piece of art, along with some documentary films in dedicated theatres. Friendly staffs who are willing to guide you :) I forgot my student ID and I showed the staff my online student account to get the student discount, and she was totally okay with it! The one thing that could have made my experience better was the item-check lady. She had a very bad attitude when I asked her for my bag the second time (I forgot to grab my money for the ticket). That attitude was inappropriate for a staff in a customer service oriented position, especially at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
It's an art gallery... So you either love it or hate it. To be honest, it's best to plan your trip when you see an exhibit you might be interested in. Merchandise is extremely overpriced ... Pins are around $30. A sticker is $7.00. Theme parks like Disneyland are cheaper by a wide margin! Tickets are expensive too, but there are deals available certain days of the week, so it's worth it to plan your outing in advance. Sometimes Costco also has discount exhibit tickets. Too expensive for a family outing though, really only for art connoisseurs. Not a lot of interactive elements for kids. Very much a traditional art gallery.
Art displays are nice and it's a good space. The day I visited the cash line was quite long, with only one staff working. You have to leave large items and bags at coat check (free) but they only have one line to drop off and pick up so another long line. Hard working staff but not enough of them.
Tuesday evening from 5pm to closing is donation night. Pay what you can to see international art works! It is more crowded than at other times, so if you can afford to pay full price, you can enjoy quieter contemplation. However, this is a wonderful program to allow lower income individuals an opportunity to enjoy excellent artwork. Check out the special events at the art gallery too. I have heard some wonderful concerts there. Looking forward to the new, improved art gallery. Donate if you can. The staff and curators are doing a wonderful job in the heritage building. I hope they are able to keep donation night going in the new facility.
I love the art gallery. The building itself is gorgeous and the curating of exhibits strong. It is a pleasure to visit: spacious, a delicious cafeteria and the best open outdoor patio in the city centre. Gift shop and great children's activities on Sundays. It is a jewel.
