Research

The Galt Museum & Archives have an extensive collection of hundreds of thousands of archival materials and collections items. Our collections are open to residents and researchers. You can search our collections database at https://collections.galtmuseum.com.

Our previous database offered researchers separate search sites for archives, collections and our library. Our new database has combined them all into one database and search function.

The process of capturing and preserving our history is never complete, nor is the history itself written in stone. We are always grateful to you for pointing out any errors you may notice. Too often the years go by and the opportunity to make corrections slips away.

Archives

The Galt Museum & Archives collects and preserves information of permanent value to the study of the human history of Lethbridge and southwestern Alberta. We collect archival resources, like photographs, minutes, oral histories, and other documents, from both public and private sources and it is available to all researchers.
