We are excited to reopen the Prince of Wales Armouries and the City of Edmonton Archives but things may look different from your previous visits. We have put some adjustments in place for the health and safety of our staff and visitors. These adjustments are designed to comply with public health orders and guidelines. Please call in advance to make an appointment for your visit to the Archives. The appointment will have a specific time for you to enter the building to help with physical distancing and allow us time to pull the materials you want to view. Plan your visit accordingly.
