Want to broaden your students’ horizons? Enhance their learning experience through a unique hands-on class tour at the Wetaskiwin & District Heritage Museum. Our curriculum-based tours are developed to give students a direct, first-hand experience of their local culture and history.
The students will be immersed in pioneer life as they dress up in pioneer clothing and take part in tours of our Children’s Legacy Center, learn Cree traditions in our First Nation’s tipi, and try a hand at various activities such as archaeology, wool carding, trading, and log house construction. Explore your options here and book a tour today!
Tailor the tour to fit the needs of the students that you know best! Our optional tour additions include butter making and general store with purchases.
Kindergarten and grades 1-6 will be offered tours that have been developed to fit their age group and school curriculum, enhancing their historical learning experience.
The fee for school tours is $2 per child or a minimum charge of $30. The Wetaskiwin & District Heritage Museum only has the facilities available to accommodate one class per tour booking.
Each station will be led by a museum volunteer or staff member. In the event that the museum is unable to provide the necessary number of volunteers, a teacher may be asked to lead a station. The Museum also requests that an adequate number of parent chaperones accompany the class to ensure that our station leaders are able to provide the optimal Heritage Museum experience.
