Sooooooo much to see in this place. Allow yourself at least two hours but you will maybe want more. Of course they have a lively gift shop as well. Guides are friendly and knowledgeable.

An awesome historical facility to visit. A museum, snack bar, new pottery made the same as years gone by + some local artisan souvenirs. Only went for some souvenirs but next time plan to check out the museum.

We ended up here quite by accident. Thinking the signs leading us to the "Historic Clay District" were taking us to the older section of the downtown, we found ourselves at the Medalta museum instead. We were not aware of and not expecting a museum...More

If your idea of Medicine Hat is the honky-tonk visible from the Trans Canada Highway you really need to take a break and follow the road signs to the city's Clay District. The historic Medalta Potteries museum is a must see. This hundred year old...More

It was worthwhile visiting and educational. Took the walking tour which showed us the inner workings of a turn of the century pottery factory. The society has preserved the history very well. Would recommend going.

36 degrees Celsius in Medicine Hat today, the sheer volume of water consumed is beyond measure. Finding some refuge at the Medalta Market, and never actually being inside the museum before, today seemed to be the day. What a great little trip back in time...More
