    My wife is into museums and so this was a must when in Regina. There are two levels to this museum which is also donation based, so it is free! The top level is about the wildlife and topography of Ca...  more »

    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 ...  more »

    Free to attend!!! Free!!! Leave a donation if you got some change. They have done a fantastic job. They sometimes have movie nights for super cheap! This is really nice as it's one of the only places to catch a flick downtown.

    Really enjoyed the 150 for 150 exhibit on Canada Day! The framed native plants and leaves was displayed beautifully, too.

    Absolutely fantastic, especially since entry the entry is by donation. My wife and I walked around for an hour to be able to see everything. Lots of very high detail displays!

    A small but very fun musuem that has free admission. The exhibits and collection are very good and their snakes alive section has real snakes. The absolute best place to see in Regina.

    I approached the front counter and asked, "How much does admission cost?" They responded with something to the effect of, "It's free, but we strongly recommend you donate the suggested donation amount." Long story short, I got guilted into paying for the admission since they were watching me with their judging eyes. The place is okay. There's a variety of educational and nature-related things to look at. When you're done with all that, there's a whole upper level filled with more stuff to glance at! The gift shop has lots of interesting and entertaining educational toys. Don't forget to check out Mega Munch while you're there - he has his own room somewhat close to the washrooms. It's probably worth checking out at least once, you lazy, uncultured baboon! Quit reading reviews and just go! It's free!

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.
