Join a MAG staff member on a guided tour of the permanent history exhibition, Remarkable Red Deer: Stories from the Heart of the Parkland.
Tours are free to attend; donations gratefully accepted!
A team from the MAG and Red Deer and District Archives teamed together to create a permanent history exhibition that celebrates the history of Red Deer and area.
About the exhibition:
Our unique settlement history and growth is credited to leadership and “can-do” attitude which is still evident today. We’re proud to be able to share the stories from the heart of the Parkland with our community.
Exhibition at a glance:
This 4800 sq ft exhibition uses a thematic approach to showcase our diverse heritage and highlight many of the little known “firsts” developed here. A creative mix of historic artifacts, archival material and modern technology will tell the stories of the lives of ordinary people, stories of vision, sacrifice, hardship and success. Visitors of all ages will enjoy a rich, multi-media experience.
Several prominent buildings have been a part of Red Deer’s landscape for many years. The exhibition features several, including the Stephenson Hall Block (Red Deer’s first commercial building), the Train Station, the Club Cafe and the Capitol Theatre. Each area is unique and offers interactive stations where visitors will discover more about the past.
