Hi there, my name is Krista and I am head of Visitor Services at Tourism Moose Jaw. In my blog I would like to share with you the local places I think are worth a visit, activities and events that stand out around town and some of the visitors that I get to meet!
First off, I want to tell you a bit about the beautiful building I get to work in! For most people living in Moose Jaw, the Visitor Information Centre isn’t probably the first place you’d think to go. The first time I ever stepped foot in it was for my job interview! What I was met with was far above my expectations.
Inside you will see our “Mini City”, there is replicas of iconic buildings in Moose Jaw like City Hall, Temple Gardens and The Tunnels of Moose Jaw. It is all finished off with a 60% scale of CPR Empress Train #2816.
We have gorgeous photos from the Moose Jaw Camera Club that hang all over the Centre. They showcase our wonderful little city in the prairies and some of the amazing talent we have living here.
We are firm believers in “Supporting Local” whenever possible so, in our gift shop you will find lots of local products to enjoy. Ranging from art to books and even soup!
We also offer a lot of services here, one of them being Welcome Packages. If you have a large group of people coming to Moose Jaw for a sports event, convention or even a wedding, we will make each of your guests a customizable welcome package!
There is also places to picnic outside, office space to rent, bathrooms to use (the cleanest on the #1 Highway we’ve been told) and all sorts of FREE literature and maps! All of this is wrapped up in a building that’s been modeled after the Temple Gardens Dance Hall.
Whether you live in Moose Jaw or you are a visitor, I invite you to stop in and say hello, maybe you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was!
