"For 3 years I have taken my grade 5 students to the Museum program that is now at the Fort Saskatchewan Museum and Historic Site.  I absolutely LOVE the program.  My students come away from the 2 days having a better understanding of what happened in the early days of Canada.  This is accomplished much better on site than I could ever do in my classroom."
