Stunning works of museum quality work. The outside of the building is gorgeous within a beautiful complex. The inside of the gallery is designed to minimize distractions and focus on the art. There is a fee to get into the gallery.

The Bill Reid Gallery is a small but a wonderfully fine gallery, with simply stunning examples of Bill Reid's gold and silver jewellery work. A beautiful exhibit was a marvellous bronze sculpture. A marvellous museum that definitely must not be missed
