World War Women

September 4 - November 20, 2021

World War Women explores the contributions made by women to Canada’s participation in the First and Second World Wars.

During these periods of extraordinary change and hardship, women served in the military, took on paid and volunteer war work and, in many cases, waited and worried about loved ones in uniform, some of whom they would never see again. This exhibition explores the challenges women faced during two World Wars, examines the choices they made, and highlights objects that tell their stories.

This exhibition has been developed by the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa.

*NOTICE* Visitors age 12+ will be required to provide proof of vaccination, documentation of a medical exemption, or proof of a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service in accordance with the Alberta Government’s restriction exemption program. This applies to all gallery visitors and drop-in events/programs (miniMAG, MAGsparks, MAGnificent saturdays, talks/tours). The MAG has the pleasure of serving many communities within Central Alberta, many of which are considered at risk, and this restriction is in place for the health and safety of all visitors and staff.
