Glenbow is Calgary’s premier institution to learn about both art and cultural history. Glenbow’s vision is simply for more people to experience art and culture more often. The facility showcases world-renowned travelling and permanent exhibitions that are meaningful to many diverse groups in our community and boasts the largest art collection in Western Canada.
Glenbow also tells the story of Southern Alberta and the West to thousands of visitors to our city each year through permanent exhibitions on our third floor. Their library and archives is Canada’s largest non-governmental archival repository. It is a major research centre for historians, writers, students, genealogists, filmmakers and media.
The Glenbow Shop offers visitors a unique retail experience while providing a viable revenue stream for the institution. Glenbow also serves as a rental facility for many corporate and private functions, offering a 210-seat theatre, meeting rooms and three gallery floors as event space. The museum is a member-based, not-for-profit, non-governmental arts and culture organization located in the heart of Calgary’s cultural district.
