Visited Rosebud and popped in here to find out about local history.
There was much more to see than we expected so really enjoyed looking at everything.
We’ll set out
Plenty of parking close by and it’s in a beautiful location.

We were pleasantly surprised at how much was in this museum. It's well setup so a person can see every thing. The lighting is great too which isn't always the case in museums.

Thank you for your visit. We are always looking to upgrade features in our museum and it is great to know that you have noticed our LED lighting upgrades that allow us to do higher lighting levels without worrying that our displays will degrade from them.

We always look through the Museum when we attend one of the theatre shows. It is surprising what new interest we find with our teens, as we tour the great local history.

So great to hear that you are bringing your children to find out about history. We appreciate the feedback and have used CoVid to work on a few more of our exhibits.

Stopped by one evening before going to see a play. I thoroughly enjoyed this museum as you could get right up to the exhibits. None were chained off like many other museums have done. There was a big variety of items to check out from a wide variety of times in Rosebud's history.
Highly recommend this museum if you want to learn about the area but the girl at the desk was less than helpful. She just read her book and didn't engage us at all. That was ok though as there was lots to see & read so we were fine.

You just feel great walking into this gem of a museum. The front area is a place to settle down if you like and take a break from the hubbub of the village. Admission is via donation, and they truly deserve your support as they have built a clean, modern space and developed excellent artifact displays. Do plan some to time to check it out! But the history doesn't stop at the door - there are a dozen thoughtful and interesting sign displays throughout this gorgeous little village outlining in a brief and concise way what Rosebud is all about. Bravo to this place for preserving the history and memory of a truly wonderful village.

Predictable old timey collection from rural Alberta, but some interesting stories about characters from the area that you may not know hailed from Drum or Rosebud. Give it 15 minutes.
