Explore the Great War through a free, interpretive gallery tour, offered on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 p.m. until the end of May. Join one of our docents for an immersive historical experience of two new exhibits. Through hands-on learning and additional narratives and storytelling, visitors will have the opportunity for a more critical and personal interaction with the history of Canada and the Great War. Deo et Patriae - For God and Country: The University of Saskatchewan and The Great War, examines how the Great War profoundly altered the University of Saskatchewan and irrevocably transformed its sense of identity as an institution. By highlighting the achievements and sacrifices of individuals, this exhibit explores the U of S community’s role in the war effort, the War’s impact on campus life and education, and the legacy that is indelibly evident in the memorials throughout campus. Vimy - Battle. Memorial. Icon. is a travelling exhibit from the Canadian War Museum. For Canadians, Vimy Ridge is layered with multiple meanings: a bloody battlefield victory at the height of the First World War in France, the site of Canada’s best-known memorial to the conflict and a symbol of evolving nationhood. This new graphic presentation richly illustrates these three themes on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation.
