What do you want the Galt Museum & Archives to exhibit?

We are dedicated to providing our community with exhibits that people in our community want to see. It is important that we learn what people in southwestern Alberta find intriguing, what topics need more information and discussion, and what fascinating themes we can explore together. What is important to you?

The Galt is a collaborative community focused museum and so, we are asking you to tell us what:

  • stories are significance to southwestern Alberta,
  • upcoming special anniversaries are there for an organization, business, event, or building you are familiar with,
  • social, economic, political, humanitarian, environmental concerns or events are important to you,
  • artifacts, photographs, and archival materials you have that will illustrate your ideas.

With your help, the Galt will develop a Special Exhibition schedule for the years 2013 to 2015 that will be filled with topics you feel are interesting and important. Wouldn’t it be great if one of your ideas is chosen! For this go around we will be looking at topics suggested until May 31.

I’d love you to add your comments below, but you are also welcome to send me your thoughts and suggestions by email: wendy.aitkens@galtmuseum.com or write down your ideas and drop them off at the main desk in the museum. Be sure to include your name and contact information so I can talk to you about your ideas.
