2020 / March 17
Closed Until Further Notice
Due to the continued spread of COVID-19, the Government of Saskatchewan is taking a proactive approach to safeguarding public health and temporarily closing facilities that encourage social gathering. The Royal Saskatchewan Museum will be closed effective today, March 17, 2020, until further notice.
“When open to the public, the RSM welcomes visitors of all ages, backgrounds and locations including school groups and families,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “We believe that closing the RSM is taking a proactive approach to promoting social distancing to stop the spread of this virus. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to reopening in the future.”
The T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend, Saskatchewan, which is also home to Scotty, the World’s Largest T. rex, is not scheduled to open until May 16, 2020 for the summer season.
As concerns regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus elevate, the RSM joins other public facilities in taking this action to help encourage people to stay home and avoid public places where the virus could potentially spread. We will reopen as soon as we can when public health authorities determine it is safe to do so.
While we are closed, stay up-to-date on RSM news through our social media channels and website.
