For those hoping to visit the RCMP Heritage Center in Regina, they will unfortunately not be able to do so until the end of March 2022.
That’s because the center is extending its annual winter shutdown to allow more time for maintenance and the possibility of another COVID-19 slowdown.

The center is generally closed to the public every winter during the month of January, while all exhibits managed by the RCMP Historical Collections Unit (HCU) are carefully cleaned and updated.
The RCMP Heritage Center will be closed to the public from December 24 to the end of March 2022.
“We made the decision to extend our temporary closure because it presents an opportunity to do the necessary work. We look forward to reopening the Center soon and providing wonderful experiences for youth, families and tourists, ”said Tara Robinson, executive director of the RCMP Heritage Center.

Robinson also noted that the first quarter of the year is historically the slowest time in terms of visitors to the center.
While the center is closed to the public, all current event reservations will continue as planned. The center will continue to accept event reservations, but only for dates in April 2022 and beyond.
The center’s online store will continue to operate with a curbside pick-up service available Tuesday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m.
