Glenbow| Weekend at the Museum

Celebrate all things Canadian at the Glenbow, March 14-15, 2015.

It’s time for another Weekend at the Museum event at Glenbow! These family-friendly weekends happen three times a year. The exhibition floors are filled with programs and events inspired by the varied art exhibitions on display; it’s all specifically geared towards families.

In March, Glenbow will be celebrating all things Canadian! Create your own mini Cabinet of Curiosity, watch rarely seen acclaimed Canadian animated films, and so much more. The following four exhibits will be highlighted during this weekend:

  • Oh, Canada: Contemporary Art From North North America
  • From Our Collection: Canadiana
  • Geoffrey James: Inside Kingston Penitentiary
  • Cabinets of Curiosity

And, if you haven’t checked out Glenbow in a while, this is a great opportunity to see what’s new with this ever-evolving Calgary institution. Last year, Glenbow announced a fresh mandate to provide visitors with a new kind of art museum experience. The goal is to help more people experience art and culture more often, and this event is a perfect way to involve your family in that initiative.

Admission to Weekend at the Museum is free for Glenbow members or $32 for Family Admission, which includes two adults and up to four youth. All activities, workshops and supplies are included with admission or membership.

    I did this once on a “date” with my youngest sun about 3 years ago. Would love to go again!

    Lived here over 10 years and still have never been. Would love the chance to go, I’ve heard (from my oldest daughter, who’s been twice) how awesome it is, especially the native exhibit. Thanks for the chance!!

  7. Fernanda T says:

    I recently told my two boys this summer we would be going to the Glenbow museum. This prize could help me keep my promise

  8. I haven’t been to the Glenbow in over 15 years!! So much I’d like to see. Thanks for the opportunity.

  9. We love the Soldiers through the Century and the miniature art exhibit beside the children’s section and the fossils. Those would be the top three must see’s. My kids imagine if they all come alive at night (sound familiar!?!?), and my son dressed in a bow tie and brought his magnifying glass because he wants to be Indiana Jones when he grows up!

    I love seeing the early Canadians area with the wild west and First Nations people Blackfoot displays are!

  12. Alena Stang says:

    I have never been but my son went with his class couple years ago everyday for a week, had special classes and even went on the floor not open to public. He LOVED it.

  13. I haven’t been to the glenbow since I was a kid. I’m sure it’s changed so much and I would love to introduce my kids to it!

  14. Love ranching history and related art.

  15. I love the Glenbow museum!

  16. I always love the Native American exhibit at the Glenbow especially the TeePee!
