Events Description

Let Calgary’s art museum transport you across time. See work from the late 19th century all the way to today. Glenbow’s collection spans the human experience – from the stories and cultures of Canada’s first peoples to the lives of newcomers to Canada, to the modern era of rapid change and the insights of contemporary artists in the 21st century.

Glenbow Museum is reopening to the public on Heritage Day. Glenbow members receive advance access on Saturday & Sunday, August 1st & 2nd.

All three exhibition floors are open. High-touch interactive exhibit elements, Discovery Room, the Train section of Building the Railroad and the Union Cafe in Newcomers in Mavericks on the third floor are closed to maintain safety during COVID-19.

Visitors over the age of 2 must wear masks inside the museum as per Calgary Bylaw 26M2020. Glenbow Museum will be limiting visitors to 120 at a time.

Other safety measures include:

  • Encouraging physical distancing with signage, spacing ‘dots,’ and route markers, where necessary.
  • Providing physical barriers such as Plexiglas shields in customer service areas.
  • Closing all hands-on, interactive elements and small spaces to limit visitor contact in our galleries.
  • Providing access to multiple hand sanitizer and hand washing facilities.
  • Increasing cleaning and disinfecting throughout our facility.
