Loved the Art Gallery of Alberta. Amusing architecture designed building. Many different art displayed inside from local artists and artist from other Canadian cities. My wife and I visited the Art Gallery last year

I love art. Plan and simple. I recognize that not all art is loved by everyone but I appreciate art on many levels. The museum, while an architectural beauty leaves much to be desired in substance. Who ever the curator is, needs a reality check....More

Thoroughly enjoyed spending four hours in this art gallery today. Especially enjoyed the gallery depicting the history of Canada in art and photographs, and the news photography. Beautiful building, relaxing place to enjoy art.

I found the exhibits to be a bit disappointing. The biennial artist exhibit had some interesting pieces and some pretty put there. There was very little of the permanent collection on display though they were setting up one area which wasn't open. The building is...More

My girlfriend and I started off our evening at the art gallery. We spent an hour and a half wandering around the two floors that were open. The third floor was closed to move in a new exhibit. I probably wouldn't like paying full price...More

I was visiting Edmonton in early March and, at my urging, convinced friends to check out the AGA! While the building itself is a stunning piece of architecture, the exhibits were very sparse and amateurish and i felt embarrassed that i had recommended it to...More
