Glenbow special events and programs are for those who want an enhanced experience and to engage with the museum in a different way. Go behind the scenes, spend your lunch break with a curator learning about a feature exhibition or enjoy an unscripted conversation style talk between a high profile artist, writer, politician or expert. Families will enjoy exploring their creative side at Weekend at the Museum and foodies can indulge their curiosity (literally and figuratively) at the popular Art for the Senses events. Finally, experience Glenbow after dark at the Launch Party which gives you an unexpected museum experience mixing art opening with live music, unique performance and a bar.
