In the spirit of respect and reconciliation, the Swift Current Museum
would like to acknowledge that we are on Treaty 4 territory, the
ancestral land of the Cree, Anishinabek, Dakota, Nakota, and Lakota
Nations and the homelands of the Métis people.
Current Temporary Exhibit:
Fighting in Flanders -
Gas. Mud. Memory.
The Swift Current Museum is excited to announce a new exhibition on loan from the Canadian War Museum.
This exhibition helps visitors learn more about the experiences of
Canadian soldiers in Belgium. It explores life on the battlefield, which
was characterized by the use of poison gas during the Second Battle of
Ypres, and by a sea of thick mud at Passchendaele. The adaptability of
soldiers and Belgian civilians lies at the heart of this exhibition,
which ends with an overview of how commemoration of the war has evolved
in Belgium and Canada over the past century.
