The Royal Saskatchewan Museum was created back in 1906 and has since then gone under many renovations.  From 1906-1945 the collection was held in several buildings including the Normal School, Provincial Legislative Building, Regina Trading Company, and others.  It was pretty much destroyed in 1912 due to the June 30th Tornado which was the deadliest tornado in Canadian history.  Since then, the museum has been rebuilt and is a beautiful place to come and hang out, maybe eat a packed lunch.  In 1990 the collection was damaged pretty bad from a fire but has since been reopened and rebuilt into something amazing.

The Northern Lights Centre was built back in 1996 is used to show people and educate them on the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).  You can see state of the art panoramic video with surround sound if you visit and see the Northern Lights any time of the day.  You can also see their space exhibits because of all of their advanced technology.  Check out their website or our FAQ page about What are the Northern Lights?  If you want the real deal though, I suggest you visit it in person.  Their SciDome is probably the coolest thing since butter.  It’s a lot like the astronomy centers you might find around the United States but this one is special in that its in direct view of the Northern Lights. 

Daily 2-part presentations. Each ticket purchased at the Northern Lights Centre gives you admission to both Yukon’s Northern Lights and a space related show on their new SciDome HD system.

Located in a hanger of the James Richardson International Airport.  Features military jets, commercial aircraft, Canada’s first helicopter, the ‘flying saucer’ Avrocar, flight simulators, and a Black Brant Rocket built by Bristol Aerospace.  What is really cool is they will do birthday parties…which is something that would have been crazy for me to have experienced as a little kid.  They have several programs and classes available if you want to learn more about flying and other aviation topics.  They have some pretty cool stuff and for the price, you really cannot beat an afternoon like this.
