Places to See

The Art Gallery of Alberta is a “New Vision” for Alberta’s capital. Opening for exhibitions since 2010, the  AGA is premier presentation venue for international and Canadian art, education and scholarship. The AGA is a centre of excellence for the visual arts in Western Canada in the 21st century, expressing the creative spirit of Alberta, and well worth a visit for locals and tourists alike.

 

The Muttart Conservatory is unique at first sight. This innovative botanical garden sets the pace for plant science in western Canada and defines Edmonton’s skyline with striking glass pyramids rising from the river valley.

Inside the pyramids, three biomes are in the Conservatory’s year-round displays. A fourth pyramid houses creative feature displays, changing up to eight times a year. As an accredited museum, the Muttart Conservatory preserves and grows one of Canada’s largest botanical collections, and shares knowledge and enthusiasm with visitors.

The Alberta Aviation Museum

Edmonton’s Blatchford Field was the centre of a robust aviation community that spurred the growth of the city, the region and the North. For over 80 years hundreds of men and women took flight from this historic airfield, flying everything from military war vessels: bombers, jets, cargo planes – to personal craft: biplanes to bush planes.

Our Museum is committed to keeping that aviation heritage alive by sharing the historic stories while offering further educational programs.
