Neal CleavesThe AGA is great! I have only seen two exhibits here but have enjoyed them immensely! An awesome building that adds character to downtown Edmonton! A fantastic addition to the city!
KatieWhile not always at capacity in terms of exhibits they offer discounted entrance when a gallery is closed. Their tours are great, I wish they had them more frequently on the weekends. The aga brings in interesting works and hosts fantastic "refinery" parties
