Families will enjoy exploring their creative side at Weekend at the Museum and foodies can indulge their curiosity (literally and figuratively) at the popular Art for the Senses events. Finally, experience Glenbow after dark at the Launch Party which gives you an unexpected museum experience mixing art opening with live music, unique performance and a bar.
