  • When it first opened a few years ago, I was a bit disappointed in the range and types of art. There's more happening there now, so it is worth the visit. The pre-Raphaelite drawings, pretty much all f...  more »

  • The design is so cool. You have great expectation of the content. But there is nothing. Construction, unfriendly reception, you still have to pay for the visit. All in All ,not worth to visit.

  • 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.
