Royal Saskatchewan Museum reopens Friday with health guidelines

After a break from the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is ready to reopen to the public.

The museum opens on Friday, July 17 with new safety protocols now in place that align with the province’s health guidelines. For example, masks must be worn for anyone over the age of three.

The CN T. rex Gallery – featuring Scotty, the world’s largest T. rex – along with all other galleries and the Museum Shop will be open four days a week.  As for the ever popular Megamunch, along with the Paleo Pit playroom, they will be closed for the time being.

Museum hours will be reduced from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Friday to Monday. Occupancy will be reduced to a maximum of 75 people at any given time and access will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  Groups of six or more will be asked to split into smaller groups.

Visitors are reminded to wear masks, pay attention to signage, use physical distancing markers and to stay home if not feeling well. Masks will be available for an extra donation of $2.

As for the T. rex Discovery Centre in Eastend, the facility will stay closed with a reopen target of phase five in the province’s Reopen Saskatchewan Plan. Staff hope that will be by next spring.
