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 offers a high level of accessibility and is suitable for all ages. Our galleries feature both temporary and permanent exhibits including the first homesteaders, and traders who contributed to the development of the Peace Region. Visitors find a replica paleontological dig site featuring locally found bones of an Edmontosaurus, prehistoric stone artifacts used by the first Aboriginal people to settle this area, transportation artifacts including a replica train station, military displays and more.
The Grande Prairie Museum also includes our seasonal Heritage Village.

Our newest feature exhibit, "Freemasonry: A History Hidden in Plain Sight" is now OPEN at the Grande Prairie Museum.
The exhibit celebrates and promotes the knowledge, appreciation and understanding of Masonic history and the influence Freemasonry has on our society today. The story is told through a travelling display from the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre containing storyboards and artifacts, regalia, and portraits of famous masons from around the world.
Our Freemasonry exhibit is further enriched with contributions from the Grande Prairie Masonic Lodge and Lake Saskatoon Masonic lodge, arriving just in time to mark the centennial of the first Masonic ceremonies held in the Grande Prairie area. This is also a precursor to the centennial celebrations for both lodges in the next year.
We want to know what you think of our exhibits, especially the temporary ones. If you had the time to come see our latest: Freemasonry: A History Hidden in Plain Site, please take a few minutes to let us know what you thought.
