Tomorrow will be the first day that visitors can step into the silver grain elevator in over a year.  Both the grain elevators have been undergoing restoration since the spring of 2010. Although the silver elevator opens tomorrow, the grand opening of both elevators will occur in the fall.  The Musée Héritage Museum invites everyone to the St. Albert Grain Elevator Park for Dominion Day to see the restoration, have a tour of the park, enjoy some snacks and participate in various activities for children.
