Since March 13, Glenbow has been temporarily closed to the public to support the effort to contain the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Calgary.
Currently, we do not have a scheduled re-opening date. We are working closely with Alberta Health as they develop specific relaunch guidelines tailored to public spaces like museums. We need to ensure that when we welcome you back to the museum, the necessary safeguards are in place to ensure everyone’s experience is positive, healthy and healing.
