WESTERN DEVELOPMENT MUSEUM LOCATIONS SET TO RE-OPEN
Western Development Museum locations are ready to welcome visitors back!
WDM locations will be opening in August with revised hours and limits on the number of visitors allowed at a time.
Members and volunteers will be able to visit the WDM Moose Jaw, WDM North Battleford, and WDM Yorkton starting August 5, 2020. These locations will begin welcoming the public on August 12, 2020.
The WDM Saskatoon will reopen for member and volunteer visits on August 12, 2020 and the general public on August 19, 2020.
All WDM locations will be open Wednesday to Sunday from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. On weekdays, the first hour of the day (11:00 am – 12:00 pm Wednesday through Friday) will be reserved for senior citizens and anyone more vulnerable to the coronavirus.
“We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to our Museums!” said Joan Kanigan, CEO. “It’s been a long 5 months, and staff have been working tirelessly to ensure visitors have a safe experience when they visit.”
To ensure the safety of visitors, staff and volunteers, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols have been put in place. Visitors are encouraged to wear masks and will be required to provide contact information upon arriving for contact tracing purposes. Hand sanitizing stations will also be available in multiple locations. More information on the protocols and procedures can be found here.
All public programming and summer events remain cancelled and the K+S Potash Canada Short Line 101 at the WDM Moose Jaw will not be operating this year. Corporate Office will remain closed to the public, and we will not be accepting artifact donations until further notice.
