Bill Reid is the truly great sculptor of the great First Nations Haida tribe. You also should see his human origins sculpture at the Museum of Anthropology.

Your trip to the Anthropology Museum is not complete until you visit The Bill Reid Gallery. This amazing gallery is hidden in the middle of Vancouver Downtown .

This for me was a gem. It is smallish, encompassable and a delight. The exhibition of Bill Reid's work is informative and engaging. There was also an exhibition of the importance of indigenous tattooing which was fascinating. Finally, the gallery shop is a must and...More

Excellent examples of Bill Reid's jewellery work, from his reawakening of his native heritage to his mastery of design in that art form. This museum has many of his wife's personal pieces, as well as a retrospect of his other work, including the plans and...More

It’s an easy walk across the street from the Hyatt Hotel. The museum is lovely but the architecture from the outside is outstanding. I also took time to walk through and survive n the gardens. Be sure to visit this gallery during your trip.
