RCMP Heritage Centre
5907 Dewdney Avenue, Regina, S4T 0P4
RCMP members are born all over the world, but they are made in Regina, Saskatchewan at RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division. “Depot” has been training the brightest and the best on its grounds since 1885. Located on the front lawn of this historic training facility, the RCMP Heritage Centre brings to life one of Canada’s oldest and most iconic stories, the story of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police through state-of-the-art exhibits, multimedia technologies, and engaging programming and tours of the training academy. Learn about the history of the Force, hop in the saddle and join the 2015 RCMP Musical Ride members by way of virtual reality, try on some uniforms, watch a movie about cadet training and visit the academy. New in 2017, those both young and young at heart will have the opportunity to experience the excitement of being in the driver’s seat of a squad car on duty and discover the pressure of cadet training through two brand new interactive exhibits!
There’s so much to do! A popular feature, and must see event, is the Sergeant Major’s Parade, a public demonstration of foot drills accompanied by a regimental band, performed over the lunch hour on weekdays.

MacKenzie Art Gallery
3475 Albert St. (in Wascana Park)
Take Some Time Out at the MacKenzie Art Gallery this Weekend! Conveniently located near the race events in Wascana Park, the MacKenzie Art Gallery is a great place to take a break over the Queen City Marathon weekend, and enjoy several exhibitions currently on view:
This is the final weekend for Alex Janvier, as this popular exhibition from the National Gallery of Canada wraps up its first stop on a national tour — and only stop in Saskatchewan. This retrospective is the largest of its kind to date, presenting more than five decades of Janvier’s paintings and drawings, spanning from his early career in the 1960s to present day, and includes nearly 100 of his most impressive works, drawn from public and private collections across Canada.
Alex Janvier is one of Canada’s most acclaimed contemporary artists and a founding member of the Professional Native Indian Artists Inc. His work combines Denesuline iconography and modernist abstraction to express a personal aesthetic that relates to his physical and cultural surroundings. Janvier’s graceful abstractions also include representational imagery that references an ancient past, more recent histories of Aboriginal peoples, and his experience of the effects of colonization and residential schools. The exhibition celebrates this extraordinary artist’s lifetime of creativity, knowledge, and perspective gained from his love of the land, art, and Dene culture.
Collection Insight Series: Jeanne Randolph
Launching this weekend, the Collection Insight Series is designed to offer fresh new takes on the MacKenzie’s permanent collection of nearly 5,000 artworks through a series of exhibitions and interventions by artists Shary Boyle, Jeff Funnell, Brett Graham, and Jeanne Randolph. This installment in the series features a selection by cultural theorist, psychiatrist, and performance artist Jeanne Randolph, who is renowned for her ability to surprise and unsettle audiences. Stop by Gallery to see what Randolph has unearthed in the collection, and expect the unexpected!
