Grande Prairie's one-stop destination for local history.
From early pioneers, Indigenous peoples, dinosaurs, and railways, to minerals, military artifacts, antiques and motorcycles, the Grande Prairie Museum has it all!
Located in beautiful Muskoseepi Park (102 Street at 102 Avenue).
The Grande Prairie Museum opened in August 1970 with a focus on preserving the pioneer history of the area. Approximately 55,000 items belong to the Museum's overall collection.
The museum offers a high level of accessibility and is suitable for all ages. Our galleries feature both temporary and permanent exhibits, including features from the prehistoric area, the first homesteads of the Peace Region, and modern times.
Our Isabel Campbell/Mel Rodacker Gallery features rotating exhibits throughout the year.
