NMC is home to the histories and memories of music in Canada, with a growing collection of unique and iconic musical instruments and sound equipment, including highlights such as Elton John’s songwriting piano, a virginal dating to 1560, the Rolling Stones’ mobile recording studio, and many more unique and rare artifacts.


The new National Music Centre will be a 160,000 square-foot, architecturally stunning destination in the heart of Calgary. Spanning 4th Street SE, the building will be a gateway into a revitalized East Village – an innovative community reinventing itself as the newest, oldest, coolest, warmest neighbourhood in town. Designed by Allied Works Architecture under the direction of Brad Cloepfil, the new NMC will resonate with expanded programming including education, performance, entertainment, recording, artist incubation and community building collaborations – both in Calgary and across the country.
