Has the largest collection of works out of any art museum in British Columbia, with approximately 20,000 works in its permanent collection. Variety of art, including pieces from Canada & Asia, plus gardens with a Japanese Shinto shrine.
I am biased, because I work here! Enjoy the complimentary tickets in your welcome package to see some of Canada's greatest artists. Exhibits range from modern conceptual, to historic, from sculpture and ceramics to video. Something for everyone to enjoy!

“If you like cemeteries, you're in for a treat. Ross Bay Cemetery, established in the late 1800's, is the final resting place for many notable and interesting individuals including Emily Carr (artist), the Rogers family (chocolatier), and victims of the SS Princess Sophia which has been referred to as the "Titanic of the West Coast". Nature lovers take note, this is a hang out spot for many local deer (loved by some, loathed by others, especially gardeners), so keep an eye out. :)”
