This was the only thing we did in Vancouver that was a waste of time. Not much art here. The first floor was undergoing renovation but they still charged full price. ALL the escalators were down for maintenance. For a city that boasts many millionaires,...More

Never been to a museum we did not like until today. First floor closed No escalators working to floors 2,3,&4. Exhibits were depressing and just plain terrible. Not one enjoyable painting. And they have the nerve to charge a fee to get in.

The visit to the gallery coincided with a display by a Japaneese artist Takashi Murakami "The Octopus Eats it's Own Leg" (recond to be Japans answer to Andy Whorol). Apart from this display the reat was just average, most of the artist were very obscure!
