Upcoming September events and Lace Up exhibit hosted by the Musée

The month of September will see many exciting events happening in St. Albert.

Lace Up: Canada’s Passion for Skating

Musée Héritage Museum is excited to present Lace Up: Canada’s Passion for Skating. This travelling exhibit, produced by the Canadian Museum of Civilization, explores the history of skating in Canada, with emphasis on three major sports: figure skating, speed skating, and hockey. This exhibit explores our love of ice sports and the mark that skating has left on our national identity.

Also included are memorabilia from local sports greats who all skated in St. Albert before attaining national and international fame, such as Joe Benoit, Eddie Joyal, Mark Messier, Jerome Iginla, Meagan Mikkelson, Troy Murray and Olympic speed skater Tamara Oudenaarden. 
 
Lace Up runs until November 3, 2013. Please come join us at the Musée on September 12, 2013 at 7pm for the official opening reception.
