Admission to the Leighton Art Gallery & Museum and 80 acre property is by donation (minimum recommended donation: $10/car) which helps us to:

  • Provide space and opportunities for artists of all ages and levels to learn, earn income, and grow their artistic practice.
  • Keep the Leightons’ artistic, architectural, and environmental legacy alive, and preserves this unique site for all of us to learn from, be inspired by, and enjoy.
  • Give children of all ages and socio-economic circumstances the opportunity to disconnect from technology and learn about themselves and their community through art, nature, and history.
  • Protect this vital native foothills habitat for the enjoyment of the public and the diversity of flora and fauna that call the Leighton Art Centre area home.


Public Parking is available ONLY at the Leighton Art Gallery and Museum entrance, 100 yards to the left of the Education Centre Studios. Please do not park at the Education Centre (unless instructed by our staff to do so), on the road, or in front of our driveway gates.

NO DOGS ALLOWED – due to the presence of wildlife and to ensure the safety of all our visitors. We thank you for leaving your pets at home.

NO SMOKING – anywhere on the property.


We have a portable wheelchair ramp available for the Gallery and Museum.

If you require use of the ramp, please call ahead to 403-931-3633 so we can have it ready for you.
