I had a great experience. When i travel i always enjoy going to a museum. I shoud try the local one. The Gault gave me a glimpse of what people were doing, feeling and the effect it had on them. Lots of interactive displays. I found talking to the staff really added to the experience. They were excited to talk... More

Great place to visit, lots of interesting displays to look at and videos to listen to. You can move at your own pace, two display areas were down when we were then, but we did learn a lot about the history of the area, very interesting.

I don't know where else to put this review. It's hosted by the museum so it goes here I guess. A group of us girls went on a graveyard tour hosted through the museum. We went to the St.Patricks cemetery on a Friday if hr. The tour itself was only 50 minutes. We did learn some things I've never heard... More

We found the Galt museum tour to be excellent, with many very interesting exhibits. It really shows a lot about what life was like in Lethbridge's past. I recommend this museum to anyone.

Was there for a private event, and it was amazing. The area has great views of the valley, and made for a fun private event. Lots of pictures, as well as there was no worry about filling the room as the size was perfect for 100 guests. Would highly recomend holding a function here

Always lots of interesting displays. Nice staff. A variety of exhibit subjects about local history. Beautiful building. They always have great speakers and various functions in the big hall with a great view of the valley. They have great fund raisers too. The gift shop has something for everyone. Their archives are fantastic.

Excellent. Took my 7 year old grandaughter there and we both enjoyed the particular exhibition at the time.

A lovely little museum, chalk full of Lethbridge history. And what a view! The museum is good for people of all ages, and while full of interest, won't suck up your whole day. I have a short attention-span and found some of the vignettes a little long but nevertheless interesting. My only complaint: please, please, please, open a restaurant to... More
