Galt Museum offering free admission for Indigenous visitors

The Galt Museum and Archives and Fort Whoop Up are now offering free admission to any Indigenous visitors who want to visit the museum and fort. The CEO and Executive Director of the Galt, Darrin Martens, says this is an important step in furthering relationships with Indigenous people.

“This initiative was taken as part of our strategic plan. One of the pillars of our strategic plan is around reconciliation and people places for all. These are two very important points for us in achieving our goals as an institution. There is no expiration date on this, and we look forward to welcoming Indigenous visitors now and far into the future.”

The Galt Museum also has three Indigenous-led exhibitions that are now on display.
