Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.

Good range of indigenous art
Dec. 2019 • Couples
This gallery has two levels. You enter via the top level and if you want to go to the bottom level you need to ask to be escorted downstairs.
The gallery has a good range of art by indigenous artists, insuring totem poles, abilities, paintings and intricate silver jewellery. Some pieces were quite large and impressive. We liked how the pieces were curated and displayed.

Nicest Gallery downtown
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Coastal Peoples carries work from First Nation artists that is far and above anything else you'll find downtown. The gallery is also a nice size, so they display a wide variety of artwork.

I can't speak about the staff as they were all very busy and we didn't have any questions.

A MUST For Tourists Who Want To Know More About Local Culture
Jan. 2019 • Solo
There are a lot of art galleries in Vancouver. There are a lot of GOOD art galleries in Vancouver. But, there are very few like this one, which specializes in local's woodwork, stone sculpture, and other media. The photos help show the quality and selection that is difficult to put into words. Tourists who are interested in local culture should definitely look here; in the western part of Gastown, a short walk from the Cruise Ship Centre.

Great place with knowledgeable staff
May 2018 • Friends
If you go to Gastown you were likely to run into lots of tourists. You can also find native art but it is often overpriced and it is not it is not always clear how authentic it is or if the artist receives much. The knowledge at this gallery is on a whole different level and some of the other stores I popped into. The sales person knew the different artists and their different styles. She was patient when I was having trouble finding the jewelry I wanted. And she explained the different components that made it more or less refined as an artistic piece. Great visit. Great ring. And I would definitely come back.

They'll probably kill me for saying this but it's like a free visit to a high-end art gallery. Here the art is aboriginal (primarily coastal) and Inuit. While there are many places flogging all sorts of First Nations stuff (some poorly crafted, some machine-made, some foreign-made!) this is the real thing. It is "art" in that it is not intended to be a sacred relic - it's art. But boy is it impressive and some of it is accordingly very pricey. The staff know their stuff and know their artists and they're pretty good with their historical references. The store is welcoming enough but doesn't make you feel like you must only whisper, bare-headed. If you're visiting and want to see high-end traditional (some with modern twists) First Nations art, this is one of the best, most accessible locations in the world. And if you want to purchase such an item, they have a very wide selection of original pieces ranging from small silver and gold jewelry up to masks, bentwood boxes and ceremonial poles. They have a good website to give you a taste of what's available at any one time.

Great local gallery with great local pieces.
Nov. 2015 • Friends
I have been to Vancouver twice since moving to the PNW. Each time I have found something to buy. I'm super picky about accumulating, so the items must be unique, beautiful and worth the investment. The staff is super friendly and they have an obvious corner on local, first nation items. All price points as well.

Stunning Native Art
Sep. 2015 • Couples
Located in Gastown, this is a fine art gallery, not a souvenir shop. If you appreciate First Nations artwork you'll find an excellent selection in this gallery, ranging in price from modest to very expensive. They carry work by many artists, in a range of media. Take some time away from the bustle of Gastown to enjoy this little gem.
