Welcome Back!

We can't wait to see you

Make sure you reserve your timed-tickets before you come to the museum.

We know art and culture can provide inspiration, solace, and, most importantly, a sense of connection to the people and world around us. Our mission is to activate art, objects, and ideas so everyone who experiences Glenbow leaves with something to share.

Glenbow is located on Treaty 7 territory and respects the history, languages, traditions and cultures of the nations on whose traditional land we reside: the Niitsitapi from the Blackfoot Confederacy, which includes Siksika, Piikani and Kainaiwa; the Îyârhe Nakoda of the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley Nations; and the Dene of the Tsuut’ina Nation; as well as the Métis Nation Region III. Their contributions to the museum and continued support are integral to our success in educating our visitors and sharing the rich heritage of this land. We further acknowledge the vital connections we have to other indigenous people (including other First Nations, Inuit and Métis), whose visual and intangible culture is represented in our collections and exhibitions.
