Behind the Scenes

A lot happens at Glenbow that the public never sees. Many Glenbow staff work behind-the-scenes on the care of our collections, and in preparing our exhibitions and programs.

Learn more about some of the special projects and day-to-day functions that take place behind closed doors at Glenbow. Whether it's a storage upgrade for our cultural history collection, conservation treatment for an Inuit parka, or keeping a vigilante eye on the pest population, you'll get a new appreciation for the scope of our work.
