A place to learn and for children of all ages to learn and have fun. On the lower floor there is a place for children to dress up and play like they did years ago, so it gives an adult time to not rush through.

An excellent display of the city's history has been created and is very well done. Many historical exhibits are so interesting to view. The building is a historical entity in itself so a must see.

By looking at the building you would not expect this museum to be to much. Wrong! It is full of interesting exhibits that are well displayed and described.

Located in a historic building in downtown Wetaskiwin, the Wetaskiwin and District Heritage Museum is well laid out in themes with many interesting and valuable artifacts. What makes it unique is the 'kids' play area.

If you want to learn about the history of Wetaskiwin, this is a great smaller museum to stop by. In downtown Wetaskiwin and close to restaurants.
