The esplanade is such a cool spot, and they have so much to teach you about the history of Medicine Hat. I also love the rotating gallery. Some of my favourites have been Motorcycles, and Our Feathered Friends!

The art collections at the Esplanade are always changing which makes it interesting to go back often. The museum is delightfully laid out winding you from the past to the present. The theatre offers a wide variety of shows guaranteed to appeal to everyone's taste.
