Lonely Planet review

Showcasing carvings, paintings and jewelry from Canada's most revered Haida artist, this tranquil gallery is lined with fascinating and exquisite works – plus handy touch-screens to tell you all about them. The space centres on the Great Hall, where there's often a carver at work. Be sure to also hit the mezzanine level: you'll come face to face with an 8.5m-long bronze of intertwined magical creatures, complete with impressively long tongues.

The gallery offers a comprehensive intro to the creative vision of Reid and his Haida co-creators, and also hosts occasional artist talks – especially when there's a new exhibition – that bring the works to life.
