Love the architecture of the building, the pieces on display were the landscapes of Canada, pretty good in my opinion, and great place to take pictures, the stairs and construction is simply great

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We're glad you enjoyed your time at the AGA and hope you had a wonderful tour of Edmonton.

We loved the outside of the building, but the art that was on display was not what we thought it would be and it was a lot smaller.

I was photographing an event at the Art Gallery and was blown away by this beautiful building and the exhibits. We had a chance to have a private viewing of all the galleries and it was absolutely amazing!!

Went to take in the "Celebration of the Canadian Landscape" which I enjoyed and appreciated for the most part but the whole experience in this new Gallery was disappointing. From the grungy front steps, through uninspiring fairly empty rooms, up the stairs to what should...More

The gallery is relatively small but it is always exciting to visit when new exhibits come to town. The facade is a beautiful work of art worth seeing if nothing else.

Very interesting architecture that is worth checking out in its own right. Lobby has some amazing sculptures, even if you dont want to pay or take the time to go in, its at least worth taking a peak at the building.
