Strathcona County Museum & Archives offers a valuable learning opportunity for everyone, from kindergarten children to seniors. Our exhibits explore the history of the land we live on, from the native peoples who first settled here, to pioneers, the natural world, and even the present day.

We offer a range of educational opportunities, including:

School Tours

We expand on the Social Studies Curriculum to help students explore our exhibits and interact with our artifacts so that they understand what life was like for the pioneers who came here in the 1900s.

Historical Activity Booklets

Provided to students in Grades 1-4 during tours, these booklets include question & answer activities, colouring exercises and more.

Seniors Tours

Seniors love our museum because it brings back many memories, and we’re happy to organize accessible tours for them.

Summer Camp Days Out

Our fun and educational museum is an ideal day out for summer camp groups. Learn about local history with our hands-on exhibits, listen to stories and enjoy the environment our interpreters provide.

Research Library
