The Civic Museum of Regina closing its doors August 31

After 55 years of preserving the history of the city, The Civic Museum of Regina (formerly The Regina Plains Museum) will be closing its doors to the public August 31st, 2015 and will be permanently dissolved by December 31st, 2015.

The museum is member-based, registered charity and has been unable to secure core-operating funds. The decision comes after working with the City of Regina for several years in hopes to avoid closure.

from the Leader-Post article "Civic Museum of Regina to be dissolved" August 14, 2015:
Scott Cheston, the board’s vice-president, called the decision to close the museum to the public Aug. 31 heartbreaking.

“A lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone into this,” he said.

Since joining the board in spring 2011, Cheston said the museum has operated on a “fairly shoestring budget.”
