  • The building is very unique and eye-catching, so is its interior design and layout. While the collections are limited, two main focuses: Indian's sculptures and North American contemporary paintings. It definitely may give you a pleasant and worthwhile visit if you slow down your footsteps!
  • Worth the trip just to see the building, a very impressive space. The main gallery has some fabulous work by Emily Carr and First Nations masks. However it was E.J. Hughes’ work that truly blew us away.
