More Southern Alberta Southern Alberta

Southern Alberta’s rural charms, lakeside villages and western history make for all kinds of adventures you just couldn’t experience anywhere else. ● Cowboy culture: Hop on a horse for a day or three. You’ll see firsthand what indigenous people, early pioneers and ranchers saw in this part of the world when it was still a wild, wild west. ● Theatre: Dinosaurs and Jesus? Yeah, it happens in the world-renowned Canadian Badlands Passion Play. ● Go local: Hit a rural or urban farmers market for local produce and grass-fed beef, pickles and preserves, artisan crafts and homegrown entertainment.

Established in 1981, the museum features displays about the town’s rich history which includes coal mining, tornados and local businesses. There is also an extensive archive that can be used for family research.This mostly volunteer run museum is an excellent example of how a community can come together with a single goal of preserving the past. It started as small museum that was only open a few hours every year. Now it’s doubled in size and is open from May to September, Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
