The Rocky Museum is located in a park like setting in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, a part of David Thompson Country Tourism Region. Volunteers tend to our beautiful flower garden, and deer often wander by from the nearby walking trail. The building also houses the Visitory Information Centre and Rocky Mountain House Chamber of Commerce.
The Rocky Museum opened its doors in 1983 to share the stories of the homesteaders, business operators and others who came to Rocky Mountain House and area to live and raise their families. We now operate from our new location, just west of Canadian Tire, off of Highway 11.
Our permanent exhibits include the Glacier School House, the Meadowns Forestry Cabin, the Coles Auction Mart Brand Boards, the Killico Store, and our extensive Barbed Wire exhibit. Visitors can learn about the forestry industry, a mainstay of the economy in decades past, and also chat with our resident artisan weaver, Sarah Greenwood.
The Rocky Mountain House Museum is a recognized museum with the Alberta Museums Association. Our visitors say that we have an amazing collection that is beautifully displayed.
From Vimy to Juno can be accessed by visitors during regular hours of operation.
