The Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre will be at the museum now until April 1 at 1:15 p.m., where visitors can interact with their talented animals and learn about their behaviour.

A Planetarium show featuring children’s entertainer Fred Penner will run 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Hot 103’s Ace Burpee will narrate “To the Moon,” an exploration of our plant’s natural satellites from all angles at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. daily.
