The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is located a short walk from downtown, nestled in the lovely tree-lined neighbourhood of Rockland. The AGGV has been building an art collection for almost 70 years. It showcases contemporary art, significant works produced in this region, and art that represents our histories. Since its founding, the AGGV has been assembling work from around the Pacific Rim and has established one of the finest collections of Asian art in the world.
After exploring our exhibitions and permanent collections, make your way into our backyard and check out our peaceful Asian Garden, boasting the only authentic Japanese Shinto Shrine in North America. It is a fine example of the architecture of a Meiji period Shinto Shrine, now perfectly situated among bamboo and Japanese maples.
