In the area of GREATER VICTORIA you will find the Art Gallery. This Art Gallery has several paintings from very fine artists.The museum is embedded in a villa of former very rich people.The museum shop is ok.

This quiet little gallery features (among other things) a fascinating exhibition of Emily Carr's work, which includes paintings of Vancouver Island forests. These wonderful views actually come to life on the Gallery's walls. No wonder Carr is Victoria's most famous and appreciated artist. A pure...More

Museum is around 15-20 min walk from the harbour and because of this does not get the same attention but it is a nice walk through a nice neighborhood. Small museum with some good Emily Carr pieces.

Well worth the walk downhill to find this gallery. Not expensive and took under an hour to visit. Currently a good exhibition re forestry and photography.

The Emily Carr exhibit was large and worth it. The rest of the gallery was sparse and had large rooms with not much on display.

We had an hour and change to spare and found this gem of a museum. It is small but it has some incredibly interesting exhibits including asian art, Emily Carr, and some intriguing modern work. Absolutely worth it!

This is a short visit to Victoria. I did not have too much time to spend at the AGV, but I decided to go anyway since I wanted to see E Carr’s work on display. As always, I was moved by her extraordinary paintings and...More

Quaint art gallery off the beaten path. I really enjoyed my time, and went specifically to see Emily Carr's work. I hoped they would have masses and masses of her art, but what they did have satiated me for the time being. Also would have...More
