“A nice museum, worth a visit”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The Galt is a beautiful museum with gorgeous views of the coulees and great information about the are's heritage. While small, the exhibits are well-curated and there is a lot of information available, which is great. You could easily spend several hours there. The rates are very reasonable, and the gift shop is quite nice. Certainly worth a visit if you're a museum lover.

“Very interesting place to visit”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

We went for a banquet that was being held there -- the food was pretty good. The scenery was lovely looking out over the river valley.

“Good Overview”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

We were especially glad for the professionalism of the staff and curator. We were doing some research on an old blanket and the curator was very helpful. We compliment the staff on presenting a good overview of the early days in Lethbridge and Alberta in general. We were visiting between exhibits, (the whirl-a-gig show was to start the next week) but that is to be expected in any museum. The lighting and seating for some of the exhibits could stand some improvement, and those details take time. Parking is nearby. View of the canyon is spectacular. One could take a picnic lunch and stroll around the nearby paths. I believe you could also take a lunch inside the museum lobby as well. Thank you.

“Visit on July 1st”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

My family and I visited the museum on July 1st and holy wow, they had all sorts of games and activities set up for kids and their families. Excellent view of the Old Man River and coulee over to the west side of the city. The museum is a so-so collection but probably good for a small city like Lethbridge.

“Excellent Place to Review Lethbridge History”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

The Galt Museum is an excellent venue to review the history of Lethbridge. And it is interactive - therefore children enjoy the exhibits as well. My grandsons couldn't get enough of sitting on the train and watching the pictures of Lethbridge. I think the Galt Museum has something for everyone and I want to go back soon. Thank you Galt Museum for all your hard work!
