“Small town charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Visited the museum during our vacation. No admission price, although a donation is always nice. The museum is in the old train station and has tones of charm. Lots to look at and learn.
Great High River and Heartland souvenirs. The woman working during our visit was very friendly and informative. She was great!!
Would visit the museum again in a heartbeat.

“Lovely restored train station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This building was recently restored after a fire and they did an amazing job. They have since lost some of their collection due to flooding but it is still worth the visit.

“Good small town historic museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a good historic museum for a small town. It had just re-opened follow the June 2013 flood. Very friendly and helpful staff. Useful as we were looking for genealogy and local historic information about High River and some of the original settlers in the area.

“Town of High River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Lots of High River is back up and running after the June 20 flood. Highwood Golf course restaurant is open (and quite busy), Evelyn's Memory Lane Diner was basically closed only during the evacuation time and the Museum of the Highwood opened yesterday, Sat, Sept 15. Colossies Coffee House temporarily relocated to the Charles Clark Medical Centre and patrons are enjoying the outdoor patio. Many other restaurants are open (some still only for takeout). So come on out, enjoy a day trip, or overnight to High River and support the town businesses in their rebuilding. Lots of activities happening the end of Sept...check the town website.

“Town mostly destroyed by Flood”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I did a detailed report on the Town , Museum of the Highwood, Highwood Golf and Country Club, Sheppard Park and links, etc after the June 20 flood that destroyed most of the community and tried to forward it by a reply E-mail but your system bounced it. Also searched to get an E-mail address on your site but no success. If you will give me an address would be happy to forward if not suggest you look on the Town of High River, Museum of the Highwood, Highwood Golf and Country Club FaceBook Sites
Went with a terrible rating ONLY due to the massive FLOOD DAMAGE!!!
