Pandemic!: A Cautionary Tale

January 22–March 24, 2019 at Musée Héritage Museum (St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street, St. Albert)

Museum Hours: Tuesday–Saturday: 10 am–5 pm; Sunday: 1–5 pm

As we mark the 100th anniversary of the worldwide Spanish Influenza pandemic in 1918–19, we look back on the impact of this and other global illnesses that changed the course of history. 

St. Albert was faced with two earlier epidemics in the late 19th century. When smallpox came to the community in 1870, it killed 300 people, one-third of the population. Fifteen years later, diphtheria struck. At the Mission, the Oblates and Grey Nuns worked tirelessly, providing medicine and comfort during these tragedies.

Pandemic! also looks at more recent diseases—such as Polio, HIV, Swine Flu and Ebola. It examines what we have learned from past events and what science is doing to stay one step ahead of a future pandemic.

An exhibition created by the Royal BC Museum in collaboration with the Canadian Museum of History.

The Musée Héritage Museum will be adding local St. Albert content with tales of prospectors willing to risk it all for gold.
