I have visited the Winnipeg Art Gallery many times as the travelling exhibits change frequently. It is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon, always interesting, stimulating, and enjoyable. I have often purchased something unique in the gift shop as a gift or for myself.

Unfortunately I visited during a period in between exhibitions so it was half priced. However, there were several exhibits to study with sufficient evidence to indicate a Gallery visit is a 'must' when at full capacity. Regular Admission prices are sensible unlike some other galleries....More

Very impressed with not only the layout but the content as well. Especially the focus on Indigenous art in their gallery. Highly recommend taking the time to visit this Gallery if you are in town. Well worth the visit.

I was highly impressed with the variety of Indigenous art in their new gallery. They even have a place where one can get an Indigenous tattoo. The four black hoods were a little out there.

The Art Gallery does not do that. You could call them to see if they know if anyone who would be interested in looking at your work
