Owner description: Set in picturesque Muskoseepi Park, the Grande Prairie Museum, opened in 1971 with a focus on preserving the pioneer history of the area. The Museum’s galleries highlight the first homesteaders and those who contributed to the development of the Peace Region. Visitors will also find a replica paleontological dig site featuring locally found bones of an Edmontosaurus. Other gallery exhibits include Prehistoric stone artifacts used by the first Aboriginal people to settle this area, transportation artifacts including a replica train station and military and war displays. The Grande Prairie Museum consists of the Rodacker/Campbell Gallery located in the main museum building, which is home to our temporary and permanent exhibits, as well as an outdoor Heritage Village.

“good”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Good for something to do, better in the summer because you can go see there fake old town setup in the back. They have it set up like it was back in the old days.

“Grande Prairie Museum is Amazing!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

As is the Heritage Village part of the Museum. Every part of the museum is amazing. They hold a variety of wonderful events which one of my all time favorites to date was the Christmas Event with Old Fashion Baked Cookies, Roasted Chestnuts ect, it was so enjoyable. This is a must see location! I will add some pictures as there is so much to do and see here, great for everyone :)
