History Gallery Mailchimp

St. Albert History Gallery

Opened April 1, 2017

In honour of Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, The Musée Héritage Museum is pleased to present its brand new St. Albert History Gallery. Through new exhibits, explore a variety of stories from the earliest people to modern-day events. The new flexible layout means you can look forward to regular story rotations that cover a wider range of subjects!

In 2017, one theme will explore the 1967 celebration of Canada’s centennial. What was happening in St. Albert  in 1967, and what projects were undertaken to mark the event?

Another section will examine our communication history—how did information travel in the past? And in our section on immigration, we’ll tell stories, old and new, about how people have become a part of St. Albert.

We hope you enjoy the new St. Albert History Gallery at the Museum!
