I know it is spring in Winnipeg but the walk up to the building was dirty and not visually appealing. We fortunately had free entrance tickets. the normal... More

Went there for a school trip to the exhibit about Ancient Greece. Great art, the guides were well informed. The parts of the exhibits that were made out of Lego were probably my favourite.

The Winnipeg Art Gallery has done a wonderful job curating pieces for the various exhibits, but by far the stand out for us was the Inuit Art Collection. It is SO exciting to see the plans for the brand new Inuit Art Centre that will begin construction soon. The WAG has over 13,000 pieces of Inuit art (the largest collection... More

The permanent exhibits is very nice and interesting , showing pieces of art and paintings from the 1400's. The Inuit sculptures are awesome and totally worth checking... More

A diverse range of exhibits meant it was very easy to spend over two hours at the gallery. Love the gift shop- though it would be very easy to spend a... More

We were given free passes to the WAG and had not been here for over a year. We have visited many of the major art galleries throughout the world and on past visits I have found that although trying hard the WAG just could not compete. Of course not like the Louvre or Met, winnipeg should still be proud of... More
