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.
