An Exhibition from the Museum Strathroy-Caradoc
April 1 – June 11
As we continue to remember the events of World War I, the Musée Héritage Museum is pleased to host The Life and Legacy of Sir Arthur Currie: An Exhibition from the Museum Strathroy-Caradoc.
Discover the story of Sir Arthur Currie—from his upbringing in Ontario to his rise through the ranks to become the first Canadian Commander of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.
We will also feature some of the contributions of local entrepreneur and military strategist, Brigadier-General Raymond Brutinel, who served under Currie’s command.
Take Your Best Shot: Youth Photo Exhibition
Contest Theme: My Canada
June 20 – September 10
What does your Canada look like? Keeping with the theme of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the subject for our 2017 photo contest is “My Canada.” We expect to get some great images of what Canada means to our young citizens.
Each year we ask participants to tell us why they chose their subjects. It is amazing to see read about the different perspectives of our young photographers.
It will be a special exhibit his year as we add images from the St. Albert Photo Club, celebrating their 25th anniversary. The adult photographers will also be presenting the theme “Our Canada.” We look forward to examining the work of multiple generations and viewing different approaches to the subject.
St. Albert History Gallery
Opens April 1
In honour of Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, The Musée Héritage Museum is pleased to present its brand new St. Albert History Gallery. Through new exhibits, explore a variety of stories from the earliest people to modern-day events. The new flexible layout means you can look forward to regular story rotations that cover a wider range of subjects!
In 2017, one theme will explore the 1967 celebration of Canada’s centennial. What was happening in St. Albert in 1967, and what projects were undertaken to mark the event?
Another section will examine our communication history—how did information travel in the past? And in our section on immigration, we’ll tell stories, old and new, about how people have become a part of St. Albert.
We hope you enjoy the new St. Albert History Gallery at the Museum!
