Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre

The Esplanade is where arts and heritage come to life in Medicine Hat. Where the stories of the great collective culture are told through music and dance, theater, painting and sculpture, exhibitions and installations, artifacts, objects d’art and more. Inside, visitors are delighted to discover a vibrant art gallery, a prized museum, an intimate studio theater, a dynamic education suite, expansive public archives and many volunteers and staff who are eager to tell their versions of our city’s tale. The Esplanade opened its doors in celebration of Alberta’s centennial in 2005 and ever since, Medicine Hat has been proudly hosting a lively procession of artists and audiences, storytellers and story-lovers, from around the region and around the globe. The celebration continues today and you are expressly invited to attend. Enter the Esplanade and enjoy.
