Hi Nancy, Thanks for taking the time to share your review. Our exhibitions all change every few months (which is why one of the spaces was closed during your visit), and this means there's always something new to see. We hope you’ll give us another...More

As director of the Edmonton Art Gallery, Tony Lupino did a very good job curating worthwhile exhibitions. Since getting rid of its distinctive modern brutalist appearance and EAG name the exhibitions are mediocre, with a sprinkling of pieces on tour from Canada's National Art Gallery....More

It does have a Frank Gehry-like feel and it both swoops and soars. It is appropriate that is a showcase for art has a distinctive and decorative style. The presentation of art has morphed from representative depictions of the world, through abstract to multimedia and...More

This was a treat to see. The striking architecture brings you in from the street and with its large, open and curvy interior space makes this an enjoyable visit. I started at the top (third floor) by taking the elegant stair case (they have elevators)....More

Not one of the better art galleries, bizarre rather than interesting. Lots of other interesting places to visit in Edmonton, this isn’t one of them.More

We liked the museum. Went there Monday afternoon and the staff was very friendly. The building is great, but honestly our favorite thing was the restaurant. Highly recommend. A well worth visit.

I took advantage of free admission through my employer and had a nice afternoon visiting the gallery. Very easy to access using the train. There are so many photo ops here. The gift shop carries an interesting variety of items.

This is not a huge museum, and it does not have a permanent collection on display, as does the Glenbow in Calgary. However, its temporary shows are usually worth seeing. More than anything else, the building itself is a work of art, as is the...More
