Student Jobs: Museum Interpreters
Apply for a summer student position today! The Prince Albert Historical Society requires twelve summer students to operate our museums during the summer months from May 11th to September 4th, 2020. Applications must be received by April 9th and are to include a cover letter and resume.
Each Museum Interpreter will help to carrying out responsibilities for the day-to-day operation of the museums operated by the Society. Typical duties include tending to artefacts, guiding tours, and conducting research. Museum interpreters are expected to share in and contribute to a strong team atmosphere, will have an interest in local history, be friendly and outgoing, enjoy meeting members of the public, and display a high degree of motivation.
Help Reconstruct the Blockhouse and Church!
The Nisbet Church and the Blockhouse are some of the oldest buildings in Saskatchewan and the oldest buildings in Prince Albert. The Nisbet Church was built as a combined school and church in 1867. The Blockhouse was used to house military equipment and was part of the defenses erected around the Presbyterian Church during the 1885 Batoche area conflict. The buildings were moved from Kinsmen Park last year due to their deteriorating condition. Read more about these buildings.
Funds raised by this campaign will be used to move and reconstruct the buildings on the riverfront near the Historical Museum. As well as replacing some logs that are rotten from age, concrete flooring and new roofs are needed.
To help, please donate using our GoFundMe page or contact the museum at 306.764.2992. Donations in any amount are welcomed; donations over $20 will be issued a tax receipt.
All museums are closed as of August 30th, 2019 and will reopen in May 2020.
Museum tours are available outside the summer season. Call 306 764-2992 to book a tour.
