Trip Planning

  • We are located 50 kilometers (25 minutes) east of Edmonton on Highway 16. See our location on Google Maps.
  • Weather should be considered when planning your visit - there is an outdoor component to all of our programs, even if this just means walking from one historic building to another. Please plan for being outside and dress appropriately. Our rural setting often means different weather conditions than in the city of Edmonton. Check the weather before your visit.

Supervision

  • Teacher/adult supervision is required for all programs
  • Students must be accompanied by a supervisor at all times during your visit to our museum
  • Supervisor requirements: 1 teacher/adult per 8 students
  • One teacher/adult is admitted free of charge for every 8 students
  • Additional teachers/adults pay admission fees according to seasonal rates
