Alberta's Provincial Historic Sites, Interpretive Centres and Museums


Your Historic Summer Starts Here! Find current things to see and do Choose historic themes Buy an annual pass Locate heritage facilities and sites Education Programs

This year, visit a place you haven't seen in a while—Alberta's past.

Check out Alberta's network of provincial historic sites, interpretive centres, museums and archives and make your summer historic.

NOTE: Now until September 5th, 2016, regular admission fees will be waived at provincially-owned historic sites and museums for evacuees of the Alberta wildfires. Evacuees will be required to provide photo identification or a postal code as proof of residency for family admission. We hope access to our sites and museums provides an opportunity for displaced Albertans to enjoy some activities together during this difficult time.
