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 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
