For the time being, Historic Dunvegan is closed to the public due to the nature of how the museum is designed and how historical materials are made available and presented.
Dunvegan Provincial Park campground will remain open for the rest of the camping seasons with users encouraged to guidelines set up by the province to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.
“Featuring historic materials in often close quarters, we are unable to safely implement measures and procedures that adhere to public health guidelines,” said Ellyn Vandekerkhove, program co-ordinator for Historic Dunvegan.
Vadekerkhove explained that the Visitor Centre and historic buildings will remain closed until further notice.
Staff at Historic Dunvegan stressed that it is important for users to come well-prepared if they choose to camp at the provincial park campground.
Campers are asked to bring their own hand sanitizer, water, snacks and toilet paper. Most campgrounds in Alberta will be cashless this year. Vault toilets will be available, but shower facilities will remain closed at this time.
