Government House Enhances Visitor Experience

Government House is taking advantage of today’s technology to increase the enjoyment of visitors to one of Saskatchewan’s most historic destinations.

A new 65-inch interactive digital touchscreen was unveiled today that lets visitors view videos and an array of information on the history of Government House, prior to their tour of the facility and the Amédée Forget Museum.  The touchscreen will also highlight upcoming events.

“Government House is one of Saskatchewan’s increasingly most popular family and tourist stops when visiting Regina,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “This innovative addition is sure to enrich the experience for everyone who visits this wonderful historic building and museum.”

In addition to the Amédée Forget museum, Government House offers a multimedia interpretive centre, the QEII Art Gallery, feature exhibits, the Sylvia Fedoruk Conservatory, the beautiful Edwardian Gardens, along with a variety of public and educational programs and events held throughout the year for children and adults.

Government House is open Tuesday to Sunday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. during the winter, and daily from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. during the summer.  Admission is always free.
