Vancouver Art Gallery Tours

Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, the Vancouver Art Gallery is one of the most impressive collections of both historical and contemporary works in Canada.  This extensive gallery contains over 10,000 different pieces of art and has a great focus on the local and regional artists, many of whom are of aboriginal decent. Among the most famous artists on display are Vancouver locals such as Jeff Wall and Rodney Graham. Moreover, the gallery also contains a substantial collection of the works of Emily Carr – perhaps British Columbia's most famous artist.

Like Emily Carr's work, most of the Vancouver Art Gallery's collection is geared towards art that has been inspired by the indigenous life style and culture in the Canadian Pacific Northwest. That said, there is also a significant collection of international works as well, including a series of important art from 17th-century Dutch artist Jan van Ravenstyn.

The Vancouver Art Gallery building itself is a piece of history within the otherwise relatively young city. While the collection has been around for over 80 years, it hasn't always remained in the same location. Today, the gallery is housed in a beautiful building that was built in 1906 and once served as the provincial courthouse. 

Practical Info

The Vancouver Art Gallery is located on Hornsby Street and is accessible via the Granville or Burrard SkyTrain stations. The gallery is open daily from 10am to 5pm with the exception being Tuesday, when the doors are open until 9pm.
