Museum

The Museum at the Leighton Art Centre is located in the last residence of A.C. and Barbara Leighton. Now a provincially designated Historic Resource, this unique Arts and Crafts inspired home was designed by A.C. Leighton in the 1950s and boasts some of the most breathtaking mountain views in Southern Alberta.

Open to the public year round, the Museum exhibits works from our extensive collection of fine art, craft, furniture, and artifacts owned and created by A.C. and Barbara Leighton.

In addition to being an Alberta Historic Resource, Leighton Art Centre is an Alberta Museums Association Recognized Museum and part of the Virtual Museum of Canada.
