I was a big fan of the Glenbow and used to have a membership. My husband and I were going to be downtown on the weekend and decided to pay the reduced admission fee of $10 each and go for a visit, since we hadn't been there in some time. What a waste of time and money! We didn't realize that the 3rd and 4th floors were closed. There were just a few meagre exhibits left on the 2nd floor. Seriously, it wouldn't be worth my time even if it were free. Such a disappointment.

Wonderful museum located in the heart of downtown. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Glenbow. Excellent displays of art, rocks and minerals, and western Canadian history.

Parking across street is economical and convenient. Reception staff friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The first floor displayed some interesting artwork, including a section on the 'unusual'. what was noteworthy was a display of 7 pair womens panties, one for each day of the week. Have never seen that before. The remaining floors were well presented and informative.

The two times I have visited Glenbow it is always a positive experience and truly unique opportunity to communicate with an artist in an intimate yet large and spacious busy art gallery with many visitors from all over the world. The art selection divided throughout the gallery make it historic & educational at the same time modern and world class art gallery. Family friendly, disability friendly with additional services and of course, a perfect place to get inspiration for young artists or mature individuals.

They had a number of new art exhibits at the Glenbow, so we decided to check them out. The major exhibit on Sybil Andrews was truly awesome. She had a long life and was active in art throughout all of it, and Glenbow was lucky enough to obtain a substantial collection of her amazing work. Of course, there were smaller exhibits of other equally fascinating artists. The Museum also has other floors of local history and other amazing objects, but we usually come for the art. Glenbow staff are very friendly and helpful, and make a great visit even better.
