The Glenbow Museum and Calgary Convention Centre were constructed by CANA in 1976. This complex featured two unique buildings – Calgary’s first convention centre and a major museum.
The lower level of the convention hall contained the main banquet hall, with the second level housing several additional meeting rooms. CANA has since gone on to construct the new TELUS Convention Centre in downtown Calgary, adjacent to the Hyatt Hotel.
The Glenbow Museum spans a total of eight floors, each featuring different artifacts and changing exhibits. The museum was built with minimal windows, as this is essential to control humidity, light and temperature of the complex to protect the artifacts. The museum continues to be a focal point and a well-known feature of downtown Calgary, providing a great learning environment for all ages.
