Winnipeg Art Gallery represents a public art gallery in the heart of the city; it claims the title of sixth largest gallery in Canada. The grey façade adopts a minimalist and contemporary design, forming a triangle from a bird’s-eye view. Inside you'll have the opportunity to view a permanent collection of nearly 24,000 works, emphasising Manitoban and Canadian art. The gallery also holds the largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. Visit the extensive in-house art library, home to more than 24,000 books. Finish with a meal on the penthouse level; the restaurant serves Mediterranean-inspired food.

Had an opportunity to visit for an hour. Not enough but between meetings. Interesting collection. Beautiful building. Would like to spend more time there on my next trip. more »
We visit the art gallery every few years to see what's on display. If you're an art nerd (I mean that with respect, like if art is really your thing) I'm sure you'd enjoy it. If you're like me, and like art, but not if you've got to read the card beside something in order to understand why it should be interesting or appealing, then it may not knock your socks off. We saw the 80s display, which was ok, but didn't overly move me. Personally, I'd love to see some more installation art and/or kinetic art.
This is a nice art gallery set in an attractive building. They make excellent use of their space and often times host novel experiences which keep you coming back. My favourite experience was watching a close up opera in the foyer. The rooftop musice series set in the sculpture garden are also a unique experience.
