Key to the Galt Museum clue number two is “archives and library”

E-mail Print

On Sept. 1, 1910, Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier attended the grand opening of the Galt Hospital building in Lethbridge, where, after some scrambling to locate the misplaced key, he opened the doors to the brick structure with the deserving fanfare.

The Galt Museum & Archives - partially housed in the 1910 building - is re-creating the fanfare and involving the public.

The first person to "find the key" will be the person to open the doors to the Galt Hospital building in a recreation of the 1910 event on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 11 a.m.  
 Clues are being released weekly at as well as Twitter and Facebook, hinting at where the key to the Galt Hospital is hidden.

 The Sept.  8 clue is: Searching, researching - can be fun right? Spend time looking in the archives into the night. Lethbridge has libraries for you to be - but did they know you'd be looking for a key?

The first clue was: Trees! Water! Go there, you'll see!  Walk or race, you set the pace. Peek around Lethbridge's beautiful gathering space!
  The Sept. 26 Museum Community Day centennial celebration event also includes the official opening of the new exhibit "Galt Hospital: 100 Years", a Galt Babies Birthday Party, tours and birthday cake compliments of the Galt School of Nursing Alumnae Association, a teddy bear hospital and children's games, as well as entertainment until 4 p.m.. Admission fees are waived for the day.
