Treasures & Curiosities: The Sequel

Treasures & Curiosities:
The Sequel

A cap, a chair, some figurines... a sickle and teletype machine... 33s, old currency, a player piano too? Uniforms, dresses, and more, just for you!

It is not just movies that prove so popular that a sequel must follow: in 2010, community members were invited into the collections vault to choose an artifact or two of significance to them. In 2014 more people are having fun exploring the vaults and storage shelves...

Permanent Exhibit: Exploring Southwestern Alberta
 

We like adding new features and surprises to the Permanent Exhibit - like our People on the Wall Podcasts, the Pete Standing Alone story, the updated NWMP story featuring Old Buck, and the new artifacts in the Drop of Water exhibit.

Pick up a Treasure Hunt at the information desk when you visit to find what's new!

In the 5000 square foot Discovery Hall kids of all ages are immersed in the history of Southwestern Alberta with our permanent hands-on exhibits.

Experience the culture of the Kainai people. Take a virtual plane ride over the undulating prairie landscape. Dig up the history of the local coal mines. Duck under a giant replica of Lethbridge's famous High Level Bridge to discover immigrants, soldiers, law makers and breakers… There’s so much to see, do and touch!

Be sure to visit often so you can see the changes, and enjoy special exhibits both from across North America and designed in-house.
