Having grown up in and around this area, I can't remember a summer in my life that hasn't included the Creamery. Although by this point I nearly have the museum memorized; I will continue to go back faithfully for the ice cream, friendly faces, and...More

It won't take you long to tour the creamery exhibit, but it is an interesting piece of local history nonetheless. Buy some ice cream and wander around the town and enjoy your visit to this little slice of central Alberta.

We were camping in the Sylvan Lake area and wanted something with a bit of history and heritage, so we went to both the Markerville Creamery and Stephenson House Historic Site. Great little outing for the family and great little drive in the country. Wonderful...More

We came many years ago with young children, we come back as seniors. We enjoyed the exhibits, read all the informative signs, marvelled at the gallery of women, and ate a nice traditional lunch.

The museum is fairly small and less of a draw for kids. They like the ice cream of course but it was nothing to write home about.

Its like taking a trip back in time. Nice historic place that lets you see what the creamery was like during yester year. Will go back again sometime.

We visited Markerville with family during a visit to Red Deer from our BC home. Unfortunately, the creamery museum was closed for the off-season, but there were enough outside information panels that we learned a lot about the pioneering era in this community. The riverside...More

We visited Stephansson House nearby and were not planning to stop here. We heard however that they had ice cream for sale. We were disappointed that it is ice cream from Calgary and not made at the creamery. The admission was only $5 but there...More

Thank you for visiting us. You're right, the Creamery was a commercial butter production facility and would not have used hand crank butter churns. Our exhibit "At Home Butter Making" is intended to show tour guests how homesteaders would have made butter on their farms....More

Only a short drive from red deer this was a nice place to visit. Very friendly and helpful staff will take you through the small but informative museum or you can self guide. Grab an ice cream on your way out, it's delicious.
