Fort Whoop-Up is a cultural interpretation centre owned by the City of Lethbridge. The Galt Museum & Archives has been contracted to operate the Fort. We curate and maintain the collection of historical objects at the Fort and organize the events and experiences for visitors. We welcome financial donations to help us accomplish our mission. Call 403.320.3777 to find out how to donate.
We are always looking for additional artifacts to use at the Fort. All artifact donations are made to the Galt. Our Curator works with donors to assess each object for historical relevance and condition. Items relating to the Fort are used to enhance the accuracy of the representation of life during the period represented there, and the objects are displayed and used in a way that maintains their condition and ensures their longevity. If you have on object you think would be a good addition to our collection, let us know in the form below.
