The Galt Museum & Archives is renowned for its educational and community programming. Our classes introduce students from preschool to Grade 8 to the history of Lethbridge and southern Alberta. Using real and replica artifacts and documents, we help students to explore the history and culture of our region.
Our current Museum Educator is Ashley Henrickson. She has a BA/BEd degree in social studies and is completing her MA degree in history. Many of our programs were created by renowned local historian Belinda Crowson, our past Museum Educator.
Over the past decade, our Museum Educators have brought over a hundred thousand students through the Galt Museum & Archives. Our peak months are May and June, but we generally have space to accommodate classes throughout the early spring and fall months.
