Historic Home Gallery & Museum
Situated in A.C. and Barbara Leighton's original home, the Leighton Art Centre is a Heritage Home Museum that offers a vibrant display of Alberta's artists both past and present. And with 80 acres of land, the centre is also an ideal spot to get a clear view of over 300 miles of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. The Leighton Art Centre hosts visual art exhibitions, creative workshops, nature walks, festivals and art sales, kids' summer camps, and art inspired field trips throughout the year. Located just 20 minutes south-west of Calgary and a short drive from Millarville, Black Diamond and Turner Valley, amidst the rolling hills and winding country roads of the Alberta MD of Foothills, the Leighton Art Centre is a must for any Foothills-area day trip. Coming in fine weather? Pack a picnic or pick one up from nearby Granary Road market! We have picnic tables with a spectacular view. Hours of operation: June to mid-November, Tues-Sun 10 am - 4 pm; mid-November to May, Tues-Sat 10 am - 4 pm. Admission to the centre is Pay-What-You-Can. Visit Leighton Art Centre for a healthy [and beautiful] dose of art and nature!
