One of North America's Best Museums

For people who enjoy museums, the name Glenbow stands out. It is not overstating the case that, for art, anthropology and history, this is one of the crown jewels of Alberta - even Canada as a whole. If you plan to spend any time at all in Calgary, be sure to visit Glenbow and revel in the genius of the founders who gifted such a wonderful resource to the people of this province.

The collections of First Nations artifacts are outstanding: Plains, Metis, Inuit, Northwest Coast and other First Peoples, plus art from the 19th century to the modern. More than that there are special exhibitions and events, such as behind-the-scenes tours and film series. Be sure to visit the museum shop and check out the beautiful handmade jewelry and crafts. A day at Glenbow is time well spent.
