Hey History Fans!

Welcome to Winter in Alberta… dry, cold, and (thankfully) full of history that is made perfect for an afternoon by a crackling woodstove. Speaking of said history, check out our exciting news!

The Fort Saskatchewan Museum & Historic Site has a brand new, much shorter name! The museum is now called the Fort Heritage Precinct. As the name emphasises, we are serious about having historical fun! Included in the Fort Heritage Precinct are these buildings/areas:

  • The 1875 – 1885 North West Mounted Police Fort
  • The 1902 – 1920’s Historical Village
  • The 1905 CN Train Station
  • The 1937 Warden’s Residence
  • Peter T. Ream Park
  • Legacy Park
  • Jarvis Park

We are open year round, 10 to 4 PM, Monday to Friday, so be sure to visit us outside of your program dates to experience all of the historical magic we have in the precinct.

Have yet to register for a History Centre program? All available dates for History Centre programming have now been registered for! Therefore, if you would like to register for the 2015/2016 programming season, please e-mail museumprograms@fortsask.ca with your preferred e-mail address, so that you can be reminded of next year’s registration opening date – June 2nd, 2015.

Fortunately, the best booking dates for History on the Road programs are still available! Therefore, if you are aware of a Junior High or Senior High class that requires a fabulously engaging and informative history program, conducted in their own class room, book now! One of our talented historical instructors/interpreters will visit you.

Enjoy the snow and stay warm with a fabulous historical book or movie!

"The leaders of each session were informative and engaged the students. They were well prepared and really made the program interesting!"
