Be our guest - Free admission for wildfire evacuees
Now until September 5th, 2016, regular admission fees will be waived at provincially-owned historic sites and museums for evacuees of the Alberta wildfires. Evacuees will be required to provide photo identification or a postal code as proof of residency for family admission. We hope access to our sites and museums provides an opportunity for displaced Albertans to enjoy some activities together during this difficult time.
