The Art Gallery of Alberta is housed in one of the city's most interesting and iconic buildings, with a façade of flowing steel and angular glass faces. While the gallery occasionally hosts travelling exhibitions of master works, much of the collection focuses on lesser known...More

The weather was threatening and for us cool (early Sept) so we went in - who wouldn't be attracted to the neat almost Guggenheim style roof lines. The museum is modest .. the exhibit on when we were there was Pre-Raphaelite and excellent. The modern...More

Art was limited and extremely average some of it bordering on totally laughable. The Indigonous Art was nice. The restaurant wasn't open as well as a few rooms were empty.More
