Trekcetera will be opening their doors to the public on April 14, 2017.

"I've got the oompa lumpa's working in the back like crazy to get everything done. It's going to be a huge undertaking, but we're aiming to be open to the public as soon as possible," stated co-owner Michael Mangold.

"This is quite unique for fans of film and television, or even those travelling on holiday. We have the beautiful vistas, the landscape, history and the museums of course," Mangold outlined.

"What Trekcetera will bring to, what I call the diamond which is the tourism here in Drumheller, is an experience for you to travel through your childhood. Actually see the build of Christopher Reeve from Superman, or Neal McDonough from Captain America or even artifacts from the Titanic."

"We carry on through the ages. We have items from blockbuster hits, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Thunderbirds, Men in Black, Captain America, Superman, Brokeback Mountain, the Carol Burnett Show, the Drew Carey Show and of course our Star Trek collection," explained co-owner Devan Daniels.

Daniels added that Trekcetera will be open seven days a week all year round, except for the Christmas Holidays.

So, what's the admission fee to get in?

"Admission is $14 for adults, $12 for seniors 65 and over, $10 for youth seven to seventeen (and) children six and under are free with a paid adult. We have a family rate as well which is $38. Those entries fees are good for two days, not just one. We will hand stamp everyone who comes in, as long as the stamp stays you can come back in the next day," Daniels mentioned.

Trekcetera will be holding special events throughout the years.

"We have two planned now, one in June and one in September and they're gala events, but we're calling them 'An Intimate Evening With...'," Daniels reported. "In June, our first event is with Nana Visitor and Nicole de Boer from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. You get a meet and greet with the celebrities prior to dinner, then dinner and then an extended question and answer."
