The AGA is a haven for creatives in the city, they throw awesome theme parties and show cool contemporary art. I've been to several talks, tours or film screenings there that I enjoyed as well. Check it out!

The museum is kinda small, but the building is really nice. I like that they really support local artist, so it is a must-go for anyone who likes art and is not familiar with Canadian artists.
