  • Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA)

    2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
    Monday-Friday 10:30AM-5PM (Thursdays 4-8PM free admission); Saturday & Sunday 11AM-5PM. Good, cheap rates.. Art Gallery of Alberta explores all forms of art and great for seeing how artists interpret things. The facility is modern and up to date. The gallery recently underwent a new section called Edmonton Modern, a architectural study about Edmonton's architecture of the 60's and 70's. Aside from that, there is always something different going on at the Art Gallery of Alberta like NHL paintings or cross Canada art gallery tours or whatever. It is truly a unique and nice experience and the people there are really friendly/helpful. Great for just wanting to have quiet time and looking at beautiful, sometimes odd, things. It should not be turned down.
