Admission

Admission to the Leighton Art Gallery & Museum and 80-acre property is by donation. There are donation boxes onsite (indoors & outdoors) for cash, and credit/debit card donations are very welcome in the Gallery Shop. Recommended minimum donation: $10/vehicle.

Your donations help 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.
