  • I highly recommend visiting this museum! Very well maintained exhibits, shockingly good taxidermy compared to most museums we have been to (we've been to alot all over Canada), very interesting displays and topics! Loved the native plants display, the incredible diaramas and the first nations section! Fascinating for kids and adults alike. Very friendly staff too! The first nations section was perfect for my grade 6 daughter who is studying the same topic in school right now! Very happy to have visited! It took about 3 hours to get through it all while paying attention to all the reading. Entry by donation. Great gift shop with local artists souvenirs!
  • Always rude front desk women. They always make me feel like I am stupid. Must be a hard job
  • I was in a bit of a rush but there was so many things to see and learn. Definitely give yourself more time when visiting, it'll be worth it.
  • Very nice live looking exhibits. Free entry with option to donate. One can learn a lot about the province.
  • This is a review of the kids camp at the museum. I sent 4 children (ages 5 to 10) to the Wet and Wild summer camp at the museum. The kids spent the entire day in the Paleo Pit in the basement except for 45 minutes outside at lunch. All the kids did the same crafts so they weren't age appropriate for the 9 or 10-year-old. The kids weren't taken to explore the museum and were told they couldn't contact us. After the first day, none of the kids wanted to go back because the activities were not engaging and the counsellors didn't treat them well. I let staff know my concerns but they did not refund any of my money.

Where to stay in Regina

For convenience, there's no better area to stay than the downtown, between the central station and Wascana Lake. If proximity to the station is important to you, stay north at one of the chain hotels along Saskatchewan Drive. If you'd rather be surrounded by greenery, look south to the more low-key accommodations along College Avenue, which backs onto the large park bordering the lake. Victoria Avenue offers a good selection of hotels in the center, as well as a large cluster of inns and motels as you head east toward the city limits.
