One of Canada's great museums and Western Canada's largest, this treasure trove houses artifacts of the West, dating back to the first white settlers of the 1800s and the history of the area's First Nations. Visitors can take delight in their exhibits like 'An Incorrigible History of Alberta', 'Native Cultures from the Four Directions' and 'Niitsitapiisinni: Our Way of Life', which delve into the history of the region and the people, exploring their lifestyle and art. Along with permanent displays, the Glenbow Museum presents a variety of temporary exhibitions. Visitors also enjoy an art gallery and archives on site.
