Own A Piece of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum

As the Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) prepares to make way for its massive new Scotty exhibit renovation, the public will have the chance to take home exhibit artwork and other paraphernalia via an online auction.

“Exciting change is coming to the RSM,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “The creation of this space will allow the RSM to invest in a dynamic world-class exhibit opening in 2019 featuring Scotty, the 65 million-year-old T.rex fossil found in Saskatchewan.  Replicas of Scotty can soon be viewed by visitors in both Regina and Eastend.”

The public will have the opportunity to bid on a range of items, photography, prints, and pieces of the exhibits through an online auction.  Items in the action will be photographs from the Map Room, and display items from the Human Factor and Zoom exhibits.  The online auction will remain open until October 31, 2018, auction items can be viewed at the museum during regular hours or online at https://mcdougallbay.com/event.php?arg=B6112D26-431E-403D-AC61-B12E1DD77F8D.  Funds raised from the auction will assist the RSM with future exhibit development.

For more information about the auction, please contact michelle.hunter@gov.sk.ca.  The RSM, located at 2445 Albert Street, is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
