    The UBC MOA reopened in June after an 18 month seismic renovation and it's fantastic. We didn't know what to expect and we were so surprised (in a good way) to discover the extensive and impressive collection of objects in a beautiful building and an extraordinary setting. There are 44K objects with many on display or in drawers that are accessible to visitors.

    We were there for the grand re-opening ceremonies and learned so much about the First People / First Nation if British Columbia.

    We loved this place and highly recommend having it on your short list of places to visit in Vancouver.

    You can do this museum easily in an hour. One floor was under construction when we visited. There was an interesting exhibit about the forgeries of MacDonald paintings. The lockers are free and convenient to use.

    Awesome place. So many talented people at one place. Able to experience different mediums from multiple artists. Amazing to find original gifts for reasonable price. Once you walk in - you trully feels welcome. I agree totally - "The variety and quality of items they have makes this a fascinating place to support local artists. "
    Perfect location too - now with available parking.

    The gallery moved back to Vancouver Downtown. It has opened a new location at Canada Place, inside the Pan Pacific Hotel, on the reception level This is the same level where the restaurant and lounge are.

    Maryann and Pousette Gallery are absolutely lovely. I have purchased three paintings from Pousette over the last few years and I'm always excited to see what new pieces and artists Maryann discovers next. She knows her clientele well and her customer service is impeccable. If asked, Maryann will give her honest and professional opinion about various works in order to guide you through the selection process. Buying original art can be an intimidating process but not with Maryann who makes it her personal mission to exceed your expectations and enjoy the experience from start to finish. If you aren't in the market to take home a piece of art, at the very least visit Pousette Gallery while in Vancouver as the breadth of their colorful collection will most certainly brighten your day!

    The gallery has been around for about 2 years, but I just found it. So glad I did. It's a bit out of the way, but well worth the visit. High quality North west coast art. I will visit it whenever I'm in Vancouver. If you love NWC art, you won't be disappointed.

    First, the address has changed, as it appears this operation has recently moved. It can now be found at 268 Keefer, about a block north. Also difficult to find, as on second floor with poor signage. People in front office showed little understanding of my questions regarding Chinese art. Most walls empty. Perhaps things will improve, but I won't be back for a while.
