Went to see Picasso exhibition as well as other exhibits. Small museum and was disappointed in Picasso as well as the additional charge.

The Winnipeg Art Gallery has set up the Picasso exhibit in a wonderfully awe inspiring presentation. Today I gained a new perspective with regards to this artist's work. Picasso's pieces are not all abstract, and along with the written stories posted beside most of his art, you get a view into the personal, complex life of Picasso. I would highly... More

I was wowed. It was excellent and I managed to catch a tour. I hate those recorded things that you press and # and listen. I get bored real quickly. Tours are not available at all times. I have gone back a couple of times and was very disappointed.

From the city - played tourist for a weekend. (now in fairness we had just come back from Paris earlier this year - so comparison to Orly / Louvre / Picasso is VERY UNFAIR). Limited art getting ready for large exhibit. A little bit of art, in a very scattered pattern. I will only return for a specific special exhibition.... More

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
