Museums & Historic Sites Culture, Heritage & Arts

Alberta’s heritage is really old, but never dull. From the days when triceratops roamed, to Indigenous sites older than Stonehenge, to the first railway boom and onward, there’s plenty of history to uncover. Choose between hundreds of museums and interactive historic sites. ● Only here: Find one of the largest collections of complete dinosaur skeletons in the world at the Royal Tyrrell Museum. ● Curious: Wander around big-city museums like Calgary’s Glenbow and Edmonton’s Royal Alberta Museum. They have a local perspective on exhibits that’ll pique your curiosity about Canada’s history.

Jasper Park Information Centre National Historic Site

Jasper, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Jasper Park Information Centre, built in 1913-14, is one of the earliest and finest examples of rustic design in the national parks. Designed by Edmonton architect A. M. Calderon, the Jasper Park Information Centre was intended to serve as a landmark and focal point for the town. Built in the rustic design tradition utilising locally quarried stone and timber, the building set a design example for subsequent construction within the town. This vision of a unified architectural theme within the park was novel when first expressed by S. Maynard Rogers, Jasper’s first park superintendent.

Brooks Aqueduct National and Provincial Historic Site

Brooks, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Brooks Aqueduct was built over 90 years ago by the Canadian Pacific Railway's irrigation division to serve as a vital link in its expansive irrigation network. The Aqueduct stretched the limits of engineering design and technology, and at the time, it was the largest concrete structure of its kind in the world. Like a giant centipede, it spans a shallow 3.2 km wide valley, suspending a concrete sling 20 metres above the prairie landscape. Once filled with precious water bound for the thirsty croplands of southwestern Alberta, today this national and provincial historic site holds only memories.
