Amazing museum tucked away in Muskoseepi Park! Incredible mix of First Nations heritage, Polish Setlers, Militarily history and artifacts, and life in the “olden days”.

What an amazing place. Walked in and greeted by a friendly young lady stating our entry is free! So onward we went. Great displays, building, items and lots of stuff to see. Lots of mocked up period buildings. I would go again

Great collection of artifacts from the past. Including old buildings and machinery. Grande Prairie was the last place in Alberta to be homesteaded. Love the old wood stoves. Imagine living in wood cabins in the cold winters here.More
