Pavilion

One of Winnipeg's most recognizable and beloved landmarks, the Pavilion has served as the heart of Assiniboine Park for over 100 years.

The building was constructed in 1908, one year before the Park officially opened, and was replaced with the current structure in 1930 following a fire. In 1998, the Pavilion began presenting free art exhibitions, primarily featuring work by renowned Manitoba artists Ivan Eyre, Walter J. Phillips, Leo Mol, and Clarence Tillenius.

In 2016, the Assiniboine Park Conservancy launched WAG@ThePark with the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG), Canada's oldest civic art gallery and Manitoba's leading art museum. This exciting partnership bring art to the community like never before. Visitors enjoy free entry to WAG curated exhibitions, drawn largely from the Conservancy's collection, as well as from the WAG's vast holdings.
