Spring Break 2016 at the museum

Many St. Albertans decided to take a “staycation” during Spring Break this year, and that brought lots of visitors down to the museum during the week.


People dropped by to take in the True Cost of Oil exhibition, play in the Discovery Room or participate in one of the drop-in family programs we hosted all week.


Program participants were busy…


  • Learning all about rocks and growing their own geodes.


  • Trying their hand at some building challenges and make their own creative sculpture using building squares.


  • Taking a road trip through time, looking at the history of cars and their toy counterparts and putting together a homemade car toy.


  • Hearing the stories of some of our history heroes and creating their own comic books.
Participants in Spring Break programs were able to grow their own geodes and build homemade toy cars


Overall we had a fun (and busy!) week at the museum, and look forward to the next holiday break – summer!


Summer programming will be offered at the museum, Little White School, Father Lacombe Chapel, and St. Albert Grain Elevator Park four days a week in July and August. For more information on summer programs and special events, check out http://museeheritage.ca/exhibits-events/current-upcoming-events/
