The Travel Alberta 2017 Spring Training and Showcase was held in Edmonton and has prepared your local Millet Visitor Information Staff and over 180 visitor services counselors from across the province to assist you in for travels throughout Alberta.

New summer staff are Tori Flint, Kayla Hammer, Lyssa Summers and Maggie Peterson, thanks to Canada Summer Jobs and Young Canada Works. Millet VIC will be mobile at local events so look for our booth thanks to Visitor Services Innovation Fund.

At this conference our staff has learned over 160 attractions and places you might want to visit in Alberta. Due to this year marking Canada’s 150th celebration, Parks Canada has made it so everyone can obtain a “2017 Discovery Pass”, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy national parks, national marine conservation areas and national historic sites across the country.

The Reynold’s Alberta Museum located 10 minutes south of Millet will also be helping us all to explore what Canada Dry, bottled pop and horse drawn carriages have in common, this year with their new exhibit on the Canadian McLaughlin family and their genius inventions.

The Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation is Alberta’s first privately licensed raptor rescue and conservation organization, and is located two hours south of Calgary in the heart of Canada’s wild prairies, Coaldale.

Medalta is an innovative industrial museum, contemporary ceramic arts facility, art gallery and community hub in Medicine Hat, and is the place to be if you love pottery.

River Valley Adventure Co. offers the opportunity to ride through Edmonton or Calgary on a Segway.

If you are curious about any other events and new attractions happening in the summer of 2017, stop by our VIC and ask, or contact us on email or Twitter and Facebook (Visit Millet), and we will get back to you within 24 hours. We look forward to helping you with all your travel needs this summer!

Millet also had a booth at the Travel Alberta Showcase, where the Millet Tourism Committee told the delegates about all Millet has to offer while they potted plants. These plants will be located across from our Visitor Information Centre for out Canada 150 Visitor Services garden in just a few short weeks! The Millet Museum is also a part of the Central Alberta Regional Museums Network (CARMN), which has over 40 museums involved this year. You can learn more about CARMN online at, and about Millet’s participation at

The Millet Visitor Information Centre is joined with the Millet and District Museum and Archives. We are located at 5120 50th Street, and our current hours are from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday until May 23 when our summer hours begin. Our summer hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Monday to Saturday. Feel free to stop by and check out our plentiful resources, impressive knowledge, local experts and friendly smiles!
