  • 2階の特別展「カナダの風景画」を見に行きました。冬の館内に居ながらにしてカナダの東から西まで四季の風景が楽しめました。3階はほとんどはモダンアートの展示でした。長い冬を屋内で過ごすこの地の人は、自ずと抽象的な思考に傾くのかなと思わされました。なお耳寄り情報として、この美術館と400メートルほど離れた場所に2017年中にロイヤルアルバータ博物館が移転してきます。現在は移転準備中で観覧できず残念でした...  more »
  • It was just one of those days when I decided to stroll around the city and this was one of my stops. Everything looks really nice. Friendly staff and they really know a lot about art. Will definitely ...  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.

  • Beautiful building, incredibly boring/dated collections and special stuff for kids etc not really up to par.. however theyre trying, the gift shop is really neat, and its really hard to sell classical art to the 20s and 30s crowd. I look forward to future exhibitions of more interesting stuff than 18th and 19th century canadian artist pen/pencil art. The side rooms with modern art pieces/interactive art is cool though, and the basement meeting/interactive space is excellent for potential future use.
  • I have been here several times since opening. Great place. Modern building, great exhibits , rotating every few months . Is a different experience every time you visit. Strongly recommend . Bring your family , your children.
  • Even if you do not go in, it's worth your while to go down to the Art Gallery of Alberta just to see the building. When you go inside it is just as manificent. The art displays change frequently and there's lots of parties and events. Check it out
  • Had some training using the facilities at the AGA last week and I was thoroughly impressed. If you need to host a meeting or small conference you should certainly consider the professional staff and beautiful surroundings of the AGA.
  • Great space and gallery. We especially love the children's programs. There usually a small children's exhibit offered on the main floor, which is something that is usually not available at most galleries. They are quick to respond to inquiries and questions. Front desk staff vary in their ability, but overall usually very helpful.
