Reynolds-Alberta Museum is open

Preparing for your visit:

The Reynolds is happy to welcome you back. We ask you to work together with us to keep the museum a safe space for you, other visitors and for our staff. Please read below for further details on what to expect when you visit.

(Note: the museum is only open from Wednesday through Sunday, until further notice)

New: The City of Wetaskiwin's mandatory face covering Bylaw 1973-20 is now in effect. Visitors over the age of two are required to wear a face mask inside the Reynolds-Alberta Museum. If you do not have a face mask, you may purchase one at our Museum Store.

What we are doing to keep you safe:

  • selling timed-entry admission tickets to allow for capacity control and no-contact payment
    • Pre-booking will help guarantee your spot and avoid disappointment on arrival.
    • If you have a pass or a coupon that you would like to use, please book your admission by sending a message to or phoning 780-312-2065.
  • encouraging physical distancing with signage, spacing 'dots' and one-way-only route markers.
  • providing physical barriers with Plexiglas shields at customer service areas.
  • hands-on or interactive displays are being regularly cleaned, or they are being closed, covered or removed.
  • providing substantial access to hand sanitizing and hand washing facilities.
  • increasing cleaning and disinfecting throughout our facility.

What we are asking of our visitors:

  • stay home if you are not feeling well 
  • purchase your timed-entry admission tickets online before coming to the museum.
  • please bring and wear your own face mask. Please note that the City of Wetaskiwin is monitoring their number of COVID cases, and when these reach 15, people will be required to wear a mask. The museum will follow these guidelines. 
  • practice good hygiene. This includes washing your hands regularly (for at least 20 seconds) during your visit, avoiding touching your face, and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.
  • touch artifacts with your eyes, not your hands.
  • keep your family unit together, and keep children within reach at all times.
  • follow the one-way-only route markers. 
  • please be patient; don't cross the barriers or crowd around exhibits, practice physical distancing, and wait your turn.
  • download and utilize the ABTraceTogether app.
  • please bring your own strollers and wheelchairs as these are not available at this time. 

What's closed:

  • food services - please bring your own food to enjoy in the Museum Restaurant area.
  • water fountains - please plan ahead and bring your own water. 
  • main theatre.
  • Drive-In theatre.

The safety of all visitors and staff is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and will determine if additional precautions are needed.

We ask that everyone continue to follow for the latest information on this situation. For information in a variety of languages please visit
