Educational Field Trips at the Historical Village
Each year, the Museum’s outdoor Historical Village is erected in May and June. At the Historical Village, students of all ages can experience life in the late 1800’s through educational field trips that include hands-on learning and interpretive tours. Our costumed interpreters guide students through various activities in the Historical Village, which is made up of four tipis and two canvas tents.
Students who visited the Historical Village have the opportunity to cook bannock over an open fire, play traditional hand games, become traders at the Hudson's Bay Company, dress as pioneers, and erect a canvas tipi.
The Historical Village programming is only available in May and June by reservation. Please contact us for further information or to book your group.
Please note that the Historical Village is not wheelchair accessible.
