Ok, all the people know, Vancouver is an expensive city. But with our “Smart Saver” guide, you can take notes about our little tips to keep your budget safe.
We have prepared for you a cultural issue… not all in Vancouver is only beautiful landscapes… this city has a wide range of museums and arts galleries. So, today: Admission by donation to the Vancouver Art Gallery! It’s not free but almost free.
The Vancouver Art Gallery is one of the most important art centers in the city, in fact, the largest gallery in Western Canada. Not enough important? Well, maybe you don’t know that the territory of Western Canada is more than twice as large as the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal combined. A spacious lawn area surrounds it, and is a meeting point at the same time. There, take place a lot of gatherings like flash mobs, the Zombie-Walk and the Critical Mass.
There are a lot of exhibition to see, however, there is one that you have to visit before leave Vancouver: “Art SpiegelmanCO-MIX: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics and Scraps”. Art Spiegelman is the author of probably, the most famous comic nowadays: MAUS, the history about a Holocaust survivor. This book was the first graphic novel to win a Pulitzer Prize. Sounds amazing, not? You can visit it until June 9, 2013.
