I Spy!

Young children can notice the most interesting things while visiting our museum. Inspired by some of our youngest visitors, we’ve prepared a special photo scavenger hunt for young children.

Groups will receive a book of photographs taken throughout the museum, along with some suggestions for activities and things to do when they find the items pictured. Children can seek out the objects pictured using our special “history hunting” toy binoculars, which will help them concentrate on the hunt and appeal to their sense of imagination.

Groups will visit all areas of the museum and will have all their senses engaged as they learn about the things they’re spying along the way.

Duration: 1-2 hours (self-directed)

Group Size: 10-100

Program Cost: $11 per child

It's an Amazing Race

Participants get to experience first-hand just how amazing our early Ukrainian pioneers really were.

The self-directed groups are divided into smaller units or teams and compete against one another, trying to complete as many stations as possible. They’ll gain a sense of the local history, cultural beliefs, and traditions of the Ukrainian settlers as they search for answers, solve riddles, or lend their hands in some sort of physical historic task.

It’s a high-energy, fun, interactive learning program keeps the participants moving, laughing, and appreciating Alberta’s history.

Duration: 2-4 hours (self-directed)

Group Size: 10-150

Program Cost: $13 per youth
