Museum closure dates


As of April 16, 2018, the Siksika Nation is in a stage of emergency due to overland flooding and many roads affected by washout. This impacts all businesses, including Blackfoot Crossing, where the outdoor park may once again experience flooding and staff may not be able to travel in to work due to flooding happening in and around their homes. Due to this state of emergency and staff shortage, summer programs may not be able to run as planned. We will do our best to keep up current bookings (conferences, tours, school groups), but this is an advance warning for sudden changes in our schedule and hours of operation due to the current flooding and transportation difficulties and what may occur as the spring season progresses.

If you wish to confirm any bookings, please call 403-734-5171 or e-mail info@blackfootcrossing.ca in advance of your visit. For school bookings, please call 403-734-4384 or e-mail edprogram@blackfootcrossing.ca.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding.

For more information about the Siksika Nation state of emergency, please visit their official web site. Siksikanation.com

Museum closure dates are always posted to the web site in advance. Please refer to the web site or call 403-734-5171 ahead of your visit to ensure opening hours.
