Travel back in time! See how early Sundre and area pioneers lived. Learn about the various cultures and communities that transformed and created the Sundre we know now. Tour our pioneer village which sits on 4 acres of land and houses 8 heritage buildings. Wander around our reception gallery with ever changing displays and take a walk on the wild side in our World of Wildlife exhibit which displays over 170 animal mounts from around the world. We invite you to the beautiful historic downtown Riverside District; in the heart of Sundre, where we celebrate “The Way We Were”.
Open year round: Monday to Sunday 10am – 5pm
