Now’s the time live it. • Full circle: Recorded human history goes way back in Alberta. Start at the beginning with First Nations history at Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park. Then, work your way to now with a tour of the Legislature Building. • Learn it: Public art and sculptures abound in Alberta’s cities. Decode their allegories with official city guides or a local who knows their stuff.

An influx of British, Finnish, German and Chinese settlers added to this multicultural community. Exhibits also feature history of farming, coal mining, schools, St. Mary's hospital and convent, the world wars, sports, and a 2010 Vancouver Olympics podium. It also has an archives (history books, newspapers, school registers, etc.) to search your family roots and serves as a Visitor Information Centre.

Janvier Gallery

Cold Lake, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:


Born of Dene Suline and Saulteaux descent in 1935, Alex Janvier was raised in the nurturing care of his family until the age of eight. Although Janvier speaks of having a creative instinct from as far back as he can remember, it was at the residential school that he was given the tools to create his first paintings. In 2012 the new Janvier Gallery opened on Cold Lake First Nations 149B, which is located north of the City of Cold Lake.
