Regina Plains Museum has a new name and a new home!

April 8, 2013

Regina Plains Museum has a new name and a new home!

For over 50 years the Regina Plains Museum has operated as the Civic Museum of Regina and is now springing forward with a new name and a new home!

To better reflect the nature of the Museum’s collection, its programming mandate and its relationship with the City of Regina, the new operating name, Civic Museum of Regina (and the related visual identity) was approved by the Board of Directors. The new location for the Museum will provide the necessary space to exhibit, showcase and safely store the entire collection which numbers over 19,000 artifacts, many of which have been donated by Regina families and businesses.

What to look forward to at the new location!

  • Over 5,000 sq.ft. of exhibition and programming space (compared to 2,000 sq.ft. previously)
  • Approximately 10,000 artifacts will be on display (comparison to 1,400 previously)
  • Steps away from City of Regina transit service
  • Accessibility for mobility-challenged
  • Ample FREE parking
  • As always, FREE admission!

Scheduled to open in late Fall 2013, the Civic Museum of Regina will be located at 1375 Broad Street. Specific details regarding the re-opening date, hours of operation, exhibits, and related information will be made available in the coming months on our website www.civicmuseumofregina.com.

Rob Deglau, President of the Civic Museum of Regina is excited about the relocation, “The Museum has been seeking a new home for several years, and is thrilled that an appropriate location has been found; one that will better display the impressive collection, provide relevant programming while ensuring accessibility to Regina’s citizens and visitors.”
