Released on June 26, 2020
The Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) announced today that it will take a little longer to re-open its doors and welcome back visitors.
Under Phase 4.2 of the Re-open Saskatchewan plan, museums can open June 29, however, the RSM is taking time to ensure new safety and cleaning protocols are in place. Additional time will also give the RSM an opportunity to further add to its outstanding exhibits and programming.
“We know how creative the exhibit designers, artists, skilled craftspeople and programmers are,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “They took the opportunity to work in the gallery during the closure and the results of their efforts, including creative new exhibits in the CN T.rex Gallery, will bring more wonder and enjoyment to this world-class exhibit.”
The RSM is working on a plan to safely re-open this summer, with more details communicated in the coming weeks. In the meantime, programming has been very busy with activities online to celebrate National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day.
The T.rex Discovery Centre will not Re-open in 2020
As part of the RSM’s revised operating plan, and after discussions with key partners and stakeholders, it was decided that the T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend, Saskatchewan will not open in 2020. The T.rex Discovery Centre already has a short season, typically opening during the May long weekend until September. With the impact of COVID-19, and an even shorter season, it is not feasible for the centre to open until May 2021.
