The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre is among the five provincial historic sites that will be reopened on Saturday June 20.
Families will have the opportunity for more day trips/weekend trips with the additional reopens, following on the steps of the successful reopenings of the Royal Alberta Museum and Royal Tyrrell Museum.
Also reopening are the Oil Sands Discovery Centre, Remington Carriage Museum, Reynolds-Alberta Museum, and the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.
The Provincial Archives of Alberta will reopen on June 23.
The Frank Slide centre, located 230 km southwest of Cochranein the Crownest Pass, provides an interpretation of what happened the day Turtle Mountain fell on April 29, 1903. An estimated 110 million tonnes of rock crashed on the town of Frank, killing 90 people, and was Canada's deadliest rockslide.
Engaging storytelling, interactive displays, gripping accounts, and award-winning shows can be experienced at the centre.
Because each of the five historic sites is unique, patrons are encouraged to visit the facility’s website to review visitor guidelines before arrival. New procedures may include pre-booking tickets and some closures of hands-on exhibits and smaller buildings at facilities.
All sites have new, reduced capacity limits and distancing measures in place, as well as more access to hand sanitizer.
