Closed on Mondays even though there was an open-air arts festival going on. The exterior, the bold modern architecture, fitting for an arts museum just rose our desire to return the next day (July 5). We did and even got a 25% discount on admission. First we visited a well done presentation on art work forensic science on the ground... More

Visited this Art Gallery as a late relative was a Member her and he & his friends loved coming here. "The Unvarnished Truth" Exhibition is absolutely fascinating and reveals so much about the techniques, materials and "ticks" that so many famous artists used. For the technically minded, this is a "must see" exhibition, and even so, the same for those... More

During my stay in Edmonton I took my daughters (age 3 & 5) to the AGA. We were pleasantly surprised that they had a little exhibit for children which was very hands on. It involved 3D images, moving objects as well as puzzles that really engaged the kids. It was not very large however we did spend around 20 mins... More

The native art concentrates on ~3 artists. We loved their works and the exhibits which are on the 2nd floor of the museum. The 3rd floor has fossils that are not labeled at all, few in number, dispersed among clear plastic forms to hold them that stick out from the sides and are definitely major tripping/safety hazards so one cannot...

I was here for a conference meeting and really enjoyed the overall place. The architecture and pieces were all good, and the gift shop also had good items. It's a great place for visitors!

I recently took friends from NZ who really enjoyed the architecture but there needs to be more art. Also the kids room was very small and not that interactive.

I was here for a conference and really enjoyed it. Lots of room for meetings and a beautiful setting in the middle of the city. A great venue for hosting any type of event. And lots of great art too!
