Museum & Historic Site

South Peace Centennial Museum Association

Grande Prairie, Alberta


Explore our 40 acres of history and years of stories. They boast an extensive collection of working farm equipment, local historic buildings, and artifacts. You can explore an old grain elevator, check out the classic cars, and see a steam engine tractor up close. Have you seen the inside of a cook car or the old Gaudin's Store? The buildings are all open to explore. Feel free to bring a bagged lunch as the picnic tables offer a great rest spot near a park for the kids. Pioneer Days, their annual event where the museum comes to life, is a special treat, complete with pancake breakfast and steam-cooked corn! The tractor parade is a big hit too, with the steam engines leading the charge. They finish their season with their Harvest Festival, featuring fall, pioneer activities for everyone! They operate a volunteer run organization, and their season runs from mid May to early September, 7 days a week. Whether you come for the tractor collection or the historic family stories there is something for everyone.
