    Centrally located in downtown Vancouver near Robson Square the Vancouver Art Gallery is the city's cultural gathering space. Great exhibitions include both domestic and global contemporary works. Read more

    Take in an exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery, followed by drinks at the charming Gallery Café. The Café’s desserts are divine and the atmosphere is seemingly European.

    The best place downtown for a sunny, healthy, well-priced lunch! But make sure to go early or late as it fills to capacity at noon!

    One of my favourite art museums in the world. Diverse collection of exhibits. Wonderful secluded café terrace on the stairs.

    Summer is the best, everyday 4-6 live patio music upstairs at their cafe. Sunday all day. Champagne, music, sunshine, bask it it.

    The steps, the restaurant, or even as you peruse the art, the Vancouver Art Gallery is a great place to unwind and catch up on the news

    It's it to try and come out to the FUSE events! It's a good deal to see the exhibits, and they have many cool outdoor installations as well.

    Take your kids to the Vancouver Art Gallery on the 2nd or 4th Sunday of the month to do a scavenger hunt through an exhibit. Then do a craft project.

    Fuse nights are really fun. Although buy the tickets in advance if you because the line gets really long.

    Interesting displays most of the time, and they've started attracting food trucks outside for the lunch crowd

    Stand in front of a fire extinguisher, thoughtfully stroking your chin. Mumble something about Hyperrealism every time someone walks by.

    I think it's the right size for Vancouver. I can't see spending $300-500 million on a replacement.
