Overall, I enjoyed the museum though the late opening on Saturdays made me feel like as an out-of-towner, I wasn't part of the target audience. Luckily I found the public library a few blocks away where I could wait for the museum to open. The...More

We came here for a school field trip. My 12yo and 10yo sons cannot wait to come back and actually tour all the displays. It is a small museum, but it appears to be super-well kept up. The school programs were very well done and...More

The art gallery and museum here are beside the Lauft house and other attractions like the community center. For a small town, it's a good gallery with enough to see. Enjoyed seeing it.More

The museum part was okay, and there was some kind of goofy exhibition about immigrants that did not make sense. But if you are going to call yourself an art gallery, there should be some art on display, and there was none. That was very...More

Having a laid back day and thought I'd check out the museum. Admission was by donation ($5/person suggested). There's a nice koi pond at the entrance. At first I was really excited, the displays and artifacts seemed like they would be interesting and for the...More

I am very sorry that you had a disappointing experience. It sounds like you were here just before the completion of the installation of our new Canada Day 1 exhibition. Sometimes we are limited by the constraints of our building, and the technical crew may...More

The muesem use to be free entry and now they want $12 a person to visit. I am disappointed with the charge, but the museum still has a good collection of early settler tools and art.More

Although it's small, the displays were well done, well marked, and well interpreted. Loved the display about WW1 and Red Deer. Staff was friendly, and although there is no gift shop, they do have 3 or 4 books for sale in a rack near the...More

The changes the museum went through in the last year were a huge improvement. Their renewed history of Red Deer is very well done, and I enjoyed the travelling exhibit.
