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. 

Viking battles, fjord horses, Scandinavian dancing - all of it and more came to Red Deer on June 24th. To commemorate the Norwegian Laft Hus Society's 30th anniversary, volunteers held a festival that the city won't soon forget.

Fort Whoop-Up

Lethbridge, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Fort Whoop-Up tells the story of the buffalo robe trade, the years leading up to and the years that followed. We will be telling the story of this region, and the people here, from the mid-1860s to the early 1890s. It is a complex story that includes the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), other First Nations, Métis, Canadians, Americans, and British. It is a story of trade and politics, good people and notorious characters, and the flow of time. We look forward to seeing you at the Fort! The Fort Whoop-Up Interpretive Centre in Lethbridge will open for the summer season in May 2017.

Reviews

Alberta is steeped in history of Indigenous people, the fur trade and missionaries. Historic Dunvegan, a National Historic Site of Canada nestled in the stunning Peace River valley, brings that history to life. Four original, authentically restored and furnished buildings are still located in the same places they were over 100 years ago, and historic interpreters are waiting to share the stories that helped shape the province we know today.
