The MAG is hopping on a provincial #meetyourmuseum campaign that is organized by the Alberta Museums Association. This summer, museums across Alberta are inviting their communities to meet their museums, and we want Red Deer to be a part of it! The campaign is designed to increase awareness of Alberta museums, boost attendance, and promote joy and collective celebration of Alberta’s culture and heritage. Red Deer’s museums and interpretive centres are a significant contributor to our community. Museums like ours are leading contributors to the social, cultural, and educational fabric of Alberta, and 93% of Albertans feel that historical resources contribute to a greater quality of life in Alberta.
