“Fabulous Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

It is kind of sad that people will pay so much for travelling has beens and not support local theatre by balking at the even low ticket costs. The theatre experience is very good. Some of the touring entertainers sell swag in the lobby making it very congested, but this is no different in any other venue. You must go an experience the accoustics and the high quality of shows that Community Theatre bring to this wonderful stage.

“Good venue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Combination Art Gallery, Arts Centre, Museum and small coffee shop. The Art Gallery didn't have any identification of the artists hanging at that time other than the main exhibitor.

“Esplanade and Museum a worthwhile visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our family visited the museum section of the Esplanade. The Medicine Hat museum closed its doors and moved all exhibits to this downtown location. It is a collection of classic memorabilia, from the early days of Medicine Hat broadcasting to modern technology and other points in between. All ages will enjoy this tour showcasing many pioneers in the Gas City.

“Theatre and Art combined”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

The Esplanade has a varied program of shows, from ballet to comedy and country music. The museum describes the town's history, and early life for the settlers - worth a visit. The art gallery showcases artists working in many mediums, from paint and photography to quilting.Exhibitions change, and there is often a chance to meet the artists and hear them discuss their work. There are interesting sculptures outside, and the oldest house in the city is preserved beside this building.
