Glenbow Museum, Art Gallery, Library and Archives
has been a long-standing partner of the Heritage Community
Foundation on many of our website projects. As a result, the
websites have gained incredible authenticity and integrity through
the vast array of images selected from the Glenbow's extensive
on-line catalogue. We are very proud to have them as a partner on
this virtual exhibit and look forward to continuing what has become
a very productive partnership.
The Glenbow is western Canada's largest
museum, with over 93,000 square feet of exhibition space spread
over three floors. More than 20 galleries are filled with artifacts
from Glenbow's collection of over a million objects.
The art collection contains some 28,000 works which date primarily
from the 19th century to the present. Glenbow acquires historical,
modern and contemporary works from the northwest quadrant of North
America, focusing on the representation of this region and its place
in western Canada.
Glenbow's Library is a treasure house of reference materials on
western Canada. More than 100,000 books, periodicals, newspapers,
maps, and pamphlets capture the people and events that have shaped
our western Canadian heritage.
Glenbow Archives, one of Canada's largest non-governmental
repositories, is a major research centre for historians, writers,
students, and the media. It houses an extensive collection of
unpublished archival records of individuals, families, organizations
and businesses, including 3500 metres of textual records, over a
million photographs, 350 hours of film footage, and 1500 sound
