Interpretive Centre

The story of the Red Deer Crossing is displayed through dramatic programs and artifacts as well as new indoor and outdoor exhibits. The theatre features an excellent 12-minute audio-visual program. Public washrooms are available on site.

Throughout the summer, history is brought to life with authentic, entertaining, and informative live programs. All three of Red Deer's founding cultures are celebrated. Visitors can learn to make bannock or home-made ice cream. They might dance to First Nations or Metis music, toss the caber and eat haggis, or participate in an old-fashioned garden harvest.

From May through October, schools and youth groups can book the site for guided programs or even overnight campouts in the teepees. Summer day camps and teepee sleepovers give youngsters an in-depth exposure to their heritage.
