Children’s Discovery Museum – Open House

The vision to create a state-of-the-art, centrally located children’s museum in the Mendel building is taking shape. Scheduled to open in 2017, the museum will be a vibrant and welcoming hub for all children and families, a resource for educators, and a major tourist destination for Saskatchewan.

We invite you to attend our upcoming open house to learn the “Big Ideas” behind the new museum design, share your feedback and contribute your ideas.

Community participation is essential to the museum’s success in ensuring a welcoming space for all children. Please share this invitation with your networks!
