Museum From Home

In order to continue operating, many organizations have had to think outside of the box during the pandemic. #MuseumFromHome has been trending around the world and Alberta is joining in on the fun!

Bringing Alberta's Historic Sites and Museums into Homes Virtually

Exciting news! Alberta’s provincial historic sites and museums will be joining the #MuseumFromHome movement with new digital content uploaded every week – from educational content, to craft projects for kids, to exclusive tours with museum staff. This is a great way to spend time with the family and keep kids engaged and learning!

Visitors can check out the various social media accounts of their favourite historic sites and museums for new content. Here's what's available now:

  • The Royal Alberta Museum’s livestream features Western Painted Turtles, Peacock Mantis Shrimp and other creatures from the Bug Gallery.
    • Follow #TankLifeTuesday for extra fun facts and features about the critters on the screen.
  • Remington Carriage Museum’s latest video features the province’s connection to Canada Dry and the prohibition era.
  • The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is showcasing a video on how to create your own pysanky (traditional decorated eggs), along with bread recipes.
  • In its first video in an exclusive behind-the-scenes series, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology shares a sneak peek of its collection, which spans the history of life on Earth – from some of the oldest known fossils, to the extinction of the dinosaurs, and beyond.
