Temporarily Closed

Update May 11, 2020

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.

We're continuing work on our plan to reopen as soon as we can. Our priority is to keep our staff, visitors and community safe. Thank you for your patience. As information and guidance evolves daily, these are some of the issues we must take into account:

  • Securing a consistent and reliable supply of approved health protection like personal protective equipment for Glenbow staff, hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies to meet Alberta Health guidelines.
  • Developing ways to manage the number of people in the museum at one time and providing guidelines for visitors to feel comfortable with safe physical distancing in gallery spaces.
  • Making decisions with a focus on the long term sustainability of our organization, to ensure that Glenbow can continue to provide accessible and meaningful art and culture experiences for future generations.

As we all work together to successfully enact the phased reopening of our economy, we are strengthened by the Alberta government's acknowledgement that museums and galleries are an essential part of our collective resilience and recovery. We're taking it slow, but we're really looking forward to when the time is right to reconnect with you in person.
