The Regimental Museum is a 2,500 square foot gallery containing a vast collection of items and artifacts pertaining to the history of the Regiment from the year 1900 to present. In addition to the items on display, the museum is home to a sizable archives collection, which contains thousands of photographs, diaries, documents, records and artifacts yet to be displayed. Annually on average, the museum plays host to some 40,000 visitors who come from all corners of the world. Staff at the museum are also occupied daily with research assignments for individual customers and for professional institutions world-wide.
The Mobile History Program
Since a fundamental aspect of Lord Strathcona’s Horse Regimental Museum involves educating the public, it is not surprising that this fascinating museum also has a portable component. The travelling museum is a 45-foot trailer that holds an enthralling100-plus year LdSH-RC history display, including art, photographs and artifacts. With this generously donated trailer, the museum can be integrated into the history programs of local schools, and used for displays at local events. This is one more way to share the stories of cavalry history and preserve the traditions of western Canada’s only regular Force Armoured Unit.
