Vancouver Art Gallery Tours

Vancouver Art Gallery
Set in a former courthouse, the Vancouver Art Gallery is the largest public art museum in Western Canada. Its collection, which amounts to more than 11,000 works, includes international artists—both contemporary and historical—but a strong emphasis is also placed on British Columbian art, including First Nations artists.

The Basics
For ease of entry, prebook tickets to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Upon arrival, wander the exhibitions, which include temporary shows. Among the highlights from the museum’s collections are an assortment of Emily Carr works. Carr, a British Columbian artist, is known for her representations of Canada’s west coast. The Vancouver Art Gallery building—a former provincial courthouse—is a local landmark, and can be seen as part of Vancouver sightseeing tours, though most do not include entry. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Vancouver Art Gallery is a must for art lovers.
  • The gallery is wheelchair accessible, with street-level access at both the Hornby and Robson street entrances.
  • Plan ahead to take a guided tour, included with admission, held several times a day on select days.
  • There is a coat check, cafe, and restrooms at the gallery.

How to Get There
Vancouver Art Gallery is situated on Hornby Street in Downtown Vancouver. Ride the SkyTrain (Canada Line) to Vancouver City Centre station. The gallery is less than a 5-minute walk from the station. 

When to Get There
Go early, particularly on weekends, as the Vancouver Art Gallery usually gets busy later in the day. On Tuesday, between 5pm and 9pm, visits are by donation; expect longer lines at this time. 

See More Indigenous Art in Vancouver
Just a block or so away from Vancouver Art Gallery sits the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art. The gallery exhibits carvings, paintings, and other works by indigenous artists of the Northwest Coast. Among the collection's notable items are works by Bill Reid, a well-known Haida artist whose pieces appear on the Canadian $20 banknote.
