Alberta Legislature 108 St & 99 Ave | assembly.ab.ca
This beautiful Beaux Arts building is the seat of the provincial government, and Alberta’s foremost historical building. The beautifully landscaped grounds boast fountains and public wading pools in the summer and a skating rink in the winter. Free tours ours are available most days of the year.
The Art Gallery of Alberta 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square | youraga.ca
This stunning building is a work of art in its own right, designed to reflect Edmonton’s northern environment and urban grid. The angular pattern on the windows is similar to the grid patterns found in city streets and in farmer’s fields. And the curved,
190-metre steel ribbon references the forms of the North Saskatchewan River and The Aurora Borealis.
Harbin Gate 102 Avenue & 97 Street
This magnificent cultural landmark welcomes visitors to Chinatown. The gate was built in the late 1980s as a symbol of friendship between Harbin and Edmonton. Visitors are encouraged to roll the ball in the lion’s mouth for good luck!
Edmonton Public Schools Archives and Museum 10425 – 99 Avenue | archivesmuseum.epsb.ca
Located in historic McKay Avenue School, this building once hosted the first sessions of the Alberta Legislature. Visitors are welcome to take a tour of Edmonton’s oldest school house, stroll in the park or relax in the Victorian-era gazebo.
Neon Sign Museum 104 Street, between 103 and 104 Avenues.
The first of its kind in Canada, this outdoor display showcases historic neon business signs from yesterday. Best experienced after dark!
