Wonderland Sculpture, Calgary

4.3
#4 of 47 in Sightseeing in Calgary
Landmark Tourist Spot
Get inside the mind of Wonderland Sculpture, a mesh artwork created by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa in 2013. This contemporary public piece stands at 12 m (39 ft) and represents a head that can be walked through. Step inside and snap some unusual pictures of your surroundings, including the towering glass skyscraper rising above. Walk around to the north plaza (on the other side of the high-rise) to see the second sculpture by Plensa here.

  • Cool place in Calgary to take awesome pictures! a must if you are walking or biking through downtown
  • Great sculpture ...Amazing for pictures!
