Save the Museum Building in Old Glenora

Built in 1965, the Alberta Provincial Museum Building on 102 Avenue and 129th Street in Edmonton stands as a true gem of modernist yet historic Alberta archtecture. This beautiful strucure is adorned by fosil-rich Tyndall Limestone from the Red River Formation, extensive marble interiors and exquisite brass fittings. The South face of the build has reproductions of the First Nations petroglyphs of Writing-On-Stone Provincial park carved into the walls. The building is a cherished place for generations of Albertans and the site of many wonderful memories of learning and discovery. The grounds of the building are already a beautiful green space and the new building stands in elegant relation to the also historic Government House. Alberta Infrastructure is presently considering the demolition of this wonderful building. In a time of economic restraint we the undersigned ask Alberta Infrastucture to put aside all plans for demolition and repurpose the building preserving the cultural and archetectural integrity of our province.
