Small but a great galery to visit. Good Canadian collection of Emily Car's paintings. Also very famous for its Far Eastern Art and Artifacts. The Galery is a bit out of downtown but can be reached on foot (30 minutes) or by BC Transit Buses...More

Interesting small gallery with guided tours of the Emily Carr exhibition. Good to understand why she is becoming so closely identified with BC and some of the issues associated with her interactions with the indigenous nations. Also a really well preserved mansion with further exhibits...More

The AGGV has a couple of very interesting exhibitions right now, one of prints by First Nations artists, the other of the intersection between the forest and technology. One room had works by Emily Carr from the permanent collection. The gallery is small, but it...More

We loved our time at the gallery. The gallery is small but exhibits were beautiful and thought provoking. There was an app that you could download to add to your experience of the Emily Carr paintings but we didn’t find the app useful or informative.

This gallery, while quite small, always seems to have interesting exhibitions. A highlight is their fine collection of works by Emily Carr, at least some of which are usually on display. There are always at least a couple of temporary exhibitions at any given visit.
