Overview

More than 100 years ago, idealistic pioneers of all descriptions – from trappers to tie hackers, railroaders to miners, businessmen to bootleggers - carved a home in Edson out of what was little more than a firm place in the muskeg. Our museum offers a fascinating glimpse into our region’s natural world and the pioneer life.The Travel Centre provides plenty of information for the curious traveler, has knowledgeable staff, an internet kiosk, free Wi-Fi, a coffee bar and a gift shop featuring local art and crafts.

Thank you for the kind words. We appreciate you stopping in. We had a chuckle over the cougar photo with the pheasant peeping through. These are great photos from our Nature World Exhibit. We hope to see you again!

Staying at the nearby Super 8 Hotel, we took a stroll to this park. I found the old CNR caboose interesting, while our grandson liked the aircraft and the giant squirrel! Nice park, well maintained.
