Fred Light Museum

Located at 11 - 20th Street East, the building was constructed in 1914 and was the St. Vital School until 1974, after which it was given to the Town.

In 1980 it became the Fred Light Museum and in
1985 the building was designated as a Municipal Heritage Property.

The Fred Light Museum is named after the founder of the museum who was a member of a pioneer Mounted Police family. He had devoted many years to the collection of artifacts. This collection combined with artifacts donated by interested individuals offers a glimpse of old Battleford.

  • The Battleford Room

  • Auditorium
    This is an area utilizing the expansive room at the top of the building offering an excellent view of the town, the National Historic Site and the Government Site.|
