As the MAG is in a City-owned facility, we are adhering to City of Red Deer policy and taking part in the provincial Restrictions Exemption Program. Visitors aged 12 and older will need to provide proof of vaccination, proof of vaccination exemption, or proof of a negative test result. Check out this blog post for information about visitation and program restrictions.

Drop in family art making! 

MAGnificent Saturdays welcomes all ages and abilities to participate in a fun art project every week. We supply the materials, the studio, and the instructions - you supply the imagination! There are also program artists available to help with any art related questions you may have. This is a wonderful opportunity for learning, creating, and exploring new materials. This program runs every Saturday afternoon from 1-4 pm, year round.


In order to participate in DROP-IN programs (MAGsaturdays, MAGsparks, miniMAG, gallery talks and tours, First Fridays), as participants can move freely around the public spaces, attendees aged 12 years and older will need to show proof of one of the following:

  1. Full vaccination for COVID-19 or, proof of single-dose (up until October 18) will be accepted as long as the dose was given more than two weeks prior to visiting the museum.
  2. Proof of a negative result from a rapid COVID test. The test must have been completed within 72 hours prior to visiting the museum. Tests must be from a private test provider and not from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories.
  3. An original (non-copied) proof of medical exemption letter.

The following restrictions are also in place:

These restrictions have been put into place as a result of the City of Red Deer's September 17th, 2021 announcement and will be effective beginning September 20th, 2021.
