Métis Crossing is a wonderful place to immerse yourself in Métis culture, past and present. The lovingly restored historical buildings, knowledgeable friendly staff and interactive experiences make the history and culture of Métis come alive. The beautiful new gathering space will show all visitors Métis people and their culture continue to thrive. Stories and lessons from the land are the real gems of Métis Crossing; walking along the North Saskatchewan is always the highlight of my visits. It is a special place that invites you to relax, connect and reflect. Time at the Crossing invokes strong happy memories and makes me feel like I am visiting family.
Visiting Metis crossing is always a unique experience. This amazing heritage site provides multiple learning opportunities that are designed to provide deeper connection and knowledge to Metis culture and community through hands on programming that is rooted in Metis history, culture and traditions.
