First to Review

We were shopping in downtown Regina and saw a sign of the Regina Plains Museum and decided to give it a try. The museum is located on the second floor and has just one room with a lot of historical artifacts about the history of the city of Regina 9and mot about the plains and prairies as the name suggests).

People of the museum told us they have about 20.000 pieces, but just ‘a couple’ of them are displayed. During our visit we saw among others a display of a part of a school and early photographs and rules governing the life of teachers. Others were a display about an old barbershop and one about the Regina Riot in 1935, with photos and other material about this moment in Canadian labour history.

More or less permanent is a sculpture called ‘the Glass Wheatfield’, with 14.000 crafted waist high stalks of glass wheat. Downstairs is a mural ‘Building Community’, which can be visited by public during mall hours.

The museum has a small gift shop and if you are shopping a Glass Wheat (crafted by Jacqueline Berting, artist of the Glass Wheatfield) might be perhaps an authentic ‘plains’ gift for home or friends.

All together it wasn’t an impressive museum; rather small and not displaying too much, but if you are in downtown Regina just take a look as we did.
