    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.

    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.

    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

    At $24 his may be the most expensive art museum on the planet, but the shows are often great and Tuesday evenings are "pay what you wish."
  • Vancouver Convention Centre
    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.

    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

    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!

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

    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.
