Anthony Henday Museum

Visit the Anthony Henday Museum, located on Main Street Delburne. Wander around our collection which includes artifacts from the pioneer days, such as coal mining, agriculture, household, railway and business. The museum itself is housed within Delburne's former CNR railway station, with the main floor setup honouring the hard work of pioneer women.

}Upstairs includes a bedroom that was once part of the station agents living quarters, and includes a sitting area with many personal items on display. Outside, take in the Historic CNR water tank tower building that was bui lt in 1930 and took care of Delburne's water needs in the early years. The main floor illustrates a replica of min ers quarters and a mockup of an underground coal mine. The second floor displays early Delburne businesses, such as har dware, creamery, general store and more. The 3rd floor is dedicated to textiles, handicrafts, sewing and a glimpse at what laundry day entailed in days gone by. The top floor is dedicated to an extensive recently renovated tool display. This is a must-see and is uniquely displayed around the main float system of this now-rare eight-sided building. 

Another building on site has also been recently upgraded with new displays that include a pharmacy and doctor area, an Anthony Henday display, who worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company and travelled through our area in 1754. Also on site is a local schoolhouse built in 1906 that has been fully restored and refinished inside and is well worth seeing. Finally, another lot has various agricultural items on display for those interested in early farm equipment.  We invite you to visit us. you would be most welcome.
