“New AGA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

The new AGA is a must see in Edmonton. It's not a huge gallery, but it's well worth the visit.

“wow - how incredible inside!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

It is a modern wonder! This building has taken advantage of some really great space and light. The feature galleries are well set up and spacious. It never feels like you're tripping over other people who are also looking at the displays.

“Wonderful Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

If you like art galleries you will love visiting this one. The building internally and externally are worth the visit. BTW the last Thursday of every month is free admission after 6pm. Also Zinc restaurant is attached and is a fantastic fancy dining experiance.
