Spend your day at Glenhyrst!


Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant is a wonderful part of our community and we would love if you spent your day with us. If you have booked a tour & workshop, here are a few more fun activities to fill in your day and allow you to spend more time enjoying Glenhyrst, the grounds, and our community.

Book a Workshop & Tour!

Fill your morning or afternoon with art! Our workshop & tours run from 9:30am to 11:30am OR 12:30pm to 2:30pm. This program offers a choice of hands on workshop of your choice and a self guided tour.

Stay for Lunch!

Did you know that Glenhyrst is so much more than just the Gallery? We have 2 other buildings on the property, a variety of outdoor sculptures, 16 acres of beautiful grounds, and the Grand River in our backyard.

Depending on the weather, consider joining us for an outdoor picnic. You and your students may enjoy a picnic lunch anywhere on the grounds or lower gardens.   Consider a nature walk, and venture to the Grand River, which is located right behind our Main Gallery.

Enjoy an Outdoor Sculpture Tour!

Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant has over 9 different outdoor sculptures on our 16 acres of land. Enjoy a walk-about around the gallery and let our Outdoor Sculpture Guide help you out.

To extend your fun a little bit, we would also like to share a free workshop download for you. This offers a wonderful opportunity to fill your day up with a little more art and a little more play.




Enjoy the History!

The Cockshutt family was one of the most powerful and influential families in Brantford. A rich history fills the home and grounds. Discover more about Edmund Cockshutt and Glenhyrst with our downloadable history brochure. Walking the grounds, and imagining the times of the past with your new knowledge can help us further explore the history and our modern culture.
