10 Things to Do with Kids in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
1. Royal Saskatchewan Museum – The RSM is an informative and interesting place to find out the history of Southern Saskatchewan. If you're interested in dinosaurs, Native Americans, or prairie wildlife, this museum has the best displays I ™ve seen. There are also some hands-on exhibits as well as a moving dino, Megamunch.
2. RCMP Heritage Centre – Every RCMP trains at this historic location. There are great exhibits year round, and if you're lucky in the summer you may see some outdoor training or the Sunset Ceremony.
3. Saskatchewan Science Centre – The Science Centre and IMAX theatre is a great place to go for hands-on-learning with changing exhibitions. Pack a lunch and make a day of it.
4. Wascana Centre – There's always something to do in Wascana Park. Feed the geese, bike, ski, skate, dragonboat, or attend one of the many festivals throughout the year. Next to the city centre it's very convenient, too.
