Relive the turbulent late 1880’s from three perspectives: First Nations, Métis and pioneer.
Duck Lake Regional Interpretive Centre is home to a museum and an art gallery which portray the events of the 1885 Resistance and its effect on First Nations, the Métis and Pioneer cultures.
The museum is set up to take visitors on a journey through the Métis’ first days of the resistance in the area around Duck Lake to the final days, the European pioneers’ everyday struggles, and the First Nations struggles with the disappearance of the buffalo.
The Duck Lake Interpretive Centre has a 24-metre viewing tower which offers views of the surrounding area.
The gift shop in the Interpretive Centre features an art gallery with works by local artists and offers handmade crafts, as well as artwork by Glen Scrimshaw.
