Often described as an oasis in the midst of the prairies, the historic city of Medicine Hat makes a good base for day trips and is itself an Alberta destination worth exploring. Discover a vibrant arts and cultural scene, a down-home atmosphere and some memorable coffee shops. Tour the Historic Clay District – the Medalta pottery made here was shipped around the world. Take in a summer festival – be it folk music or jazz or the annual rodeo. Rent a canoe and paddle the lazy South Saskatchewan River. Explore more than 100 parks and over 90 km (56 mi) of walking trails. Kick back in Canada’s sunniest city.
Medalta is a jewel in the Canadian Badlands - an industrial museum and contemporary arts centre, framed by the dramatic cliffs of the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Open year-round.
