1. Art Gallery of Alberta
What it is: This is one of West Canada’s best museums, but you’ll know it mostly for its outrageous design by Donald G. Bittorf and B. James Wensley.
Why go: The museum is home to a rich selection of some incredible works of art, from the 19th century to the present day. But it’s not a trip to the museum without seeing “The Touch Lab”, which lets you interact with the art there, and the star of the show “The Vessel” by Montreal artist David Altmejd.
