If you want to learn about the history of Wetaskiwin, this is a great smaller museum to stop by. In downtown Wetaskiwin and close to restaurants.

it is always fun to visit the smaller museums, and this is a good one. Place for the kids to hang out in the lower level, special attractions on the main, and a good local history section upstairs. Conveniently located right downtown.

It is filled with many objects and items that just continually make you say to yourself "I remember that!".

We stopped by thinking it would be a nice way to spend an hour if that. Well I couldn't get my kids to leave!!! This place transformed the basement into an old school house, an old country kitchen, an old general store, and back yard! The kids got to play with real old fashioned tools. From the old fashion stove... More
