The Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) offers schools programs and tours for grades 1-12

NEW:  School Programs On-Line

Due to CoVID 19, we have decided to offer schools more options for booking programs during quarantine and for schools and homeschools who cannot easily access our onsite programming.

We have added two of our most popular programs on Google Classroom as a pilot project and we are offering them complementary until June 26, 2020.  Please send us your feedback on how we can improve these on-line programs.

To access these on-line programs contact our booking office Monday – Friday 9:00 – 4:30 p.m:

MAG onsite school programs are:

Experiential & inquiry-based
Exhibition focused

Program outline:

30 minute power point presentation with artifacts to handle;
30 minute theme based activity in the museum;
1 hour theme based art activity.

Book at least 2 weeks in advance to ensure availability of staff and supplies.

Choose alternative dates for us to better accommodate you.

Confirmation letter will be sent upon booking.

Costs reflect staffing and program materials.

Cancellations for school programs must be received at least 48 hours before your confirmed booking so we can cancel programming staff. You will be charged a $45.00 cancellation fee within 48 hours, unless the cancellation is due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, in which case you may reschedule without penalty.

Fees have been updated for the 2019/2020 school year.
