Brrrr....Looking for something to do indoors?

The Museum is a great place to visit on those days when you need something to do indoors! Our Current Exhibits include young artist, Courtney Auger and a travelling exhibit from the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre: The Barbed Wire Solution: Canada's First Internment Operations, 1914-1920.

We also have our rocks and fossils, including a chunk of meteorite from space, the molar of a woolly mammoth and even the tooth of an Albertosaurus dinosaur!

The Sir Alexander Mackenzie Gallery has a variety of furs and fur trade artifacts. You can pet a brown bear or a wolverine and explore the lives of the early traders and trappers, including how they stayed warm in these cold, northern winters without the benefit of modern heating and transportation.

We welcome everyone to come and warm up at the Museum!
