Happy Canada Day!

As is tradition, this year's Canada Day festivities will begin at the Museum with a flag raising ceremony at 11:30 am. Bring your decorated bikes and strollers and participate in the walking parade from the Museum to the Riverfront Park along the scenic river trail. At Riverfront Park, the festivities will continue with performances and family activities until 3 pm. (For more information, please call Community Services at (780) 624-1000 or you can view their poster here.) And don't forget the fireworks that will take place July 1st at 11:59 pm!

The Museum will also be open from 12-4 pm and admission is FREE all afternoon. Come and see our Cabinets of Curiosities including our excellent rock and fossil collection and explore the Sir Alexander Mackenzie gallery where you can see a beaver, brown bear and many other northern furs and learn more about Sir Alexander Mackenzie's historic voyage across Canada.
