Looking to plan something fun this summer?
Over the coming weeks, the province is reopening some museums, historic sites and archives at reduced visitor capacity and mandatory masks in line with Stage 2 of easing COVID-19 restrictions.
Timed entry is in effect at many of the sites to allow them to abide by the 33 per cent capacity rule.
Here’s what’s opening when — and what visitors can expect to see.
- The Provincial Archives of Alberta reopened its doors in Edmonton this week with a new photo exhibit dubbed Prairie Royalty that captures moments when everyday Albertans could embrace nobility. More information is available at provincialarchives.alberta.ca.
- The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology is back with a new exhibit that highlights the rise of mammals during the Cenozoic era. Visitors are recommended to purchase timed tickets online at tyrrellmuseum.com before driving to Drumheller to avoid disappointment.
