WE are an AMA Recognized Museum!

The Grande Prairie Museum is proud to announce that it is the latest institution in Alberta to receive the Recognized Museum designation from the Alberta Museums Association (AMA), this designation extends our status until 2019.

This is an exciting time for the Grande Prairie Museum because earning this designation demonstrates that it is committed to maintaining standards of professional practice and to ensuring that it plays a strong and important role within the community.AMA 2014 - 2019 Logo

The Grande Prairie Museum voluntarily participated in the Recognized Museum Program offered by the AMA, which involved providing evidence to a panel of museum professionals that demonstrated how the institution meets the AMA’s Definition of a Museum.

Visitors to the Grande Prairie Museum can now look for the easily recognizable Recognized Museum logo, which identifies the institutions in the province that offer a quality museum experience.
