Learn While Having Fun

Don’t let the name ‘museum’ fool you; the Heritage Discovery Centre is sure you blow your mind! This museum seeks to keep your attention with hands-on exhibits, video documentaries, and various displays. You'll feel engaged by participating in exhibits, asking questions to the museum staff, and seeing artifacts up close that date back millions of years. Along with the museum, you'll also have access to the Kin Gallery which includes exhibits such as “Don Everton Radio Collection”; “Horses, Wagons, and Cowboys: The Chuckwagon Story”; and “In the Shadow of the Rockies: Alberta Sasquatch Stories”.
