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

Today the building is home to the Galt Museum & Archives, which 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 have been released weekly at as well as Twitter and Facebook, hinting at where the key to the Galt Hospital is hidden. 
The Sept. 22 clue is: Using an old building and added a new. Looking for art? 
This is a great place to start. Exhibits to enjoy and lots to see.  But where, oh where, is that Galt Museum key?
The third clue was: 100 years the Galt will celebrate. Our party is guaranteed to be top rate. Other places in Lethbridge are looking to open big.  Wonder what will be happening at their gig?
The second clue was: 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, entertainment and more. 

Admission is free, thanks to the Friends of the Galt Museum Society. A streetcar shuttle to the Galt from the former IGA parking lot in downtown Lethbridge is sponsored by Exhibition Park. A detailed schedule is available online at
