Pioneer Acres of Alberta

Discover machinery and the day-to-day rural life of Western Canada at one of the largest agricultural and industrial museums in Alberta! The Pioneer Acres of Alberta Museum houses an extensive collection of antique tractors, trucks, engines and steam equipment. You can also see working blacksmith and wheelwright shops, a steam building with a vertical boiler and two steam engines, a farmhouse from 1914 and a one-room schoolhouse. 

At our annual show in August, you can see equipment from as early as 1910 running as it did back in the day, driving in parades, powering threshing machines, and more! You can enjoy a self-guided tour and check out the Granlea Beef Ring and the Grain Academy to learn more about how food was produced 100 years ago. Or you can get a tour from one of our knowledgeable staff or volunteer tour guides who know stories of donors, pioneers, and the people who make this museum possible. 

While the annual show is an integral part of the museum's history we are much more than the show with over 20 buildings, 50 acres of land, and 3 official clubs calling the grounds home. Whether you want to see a blacksmith making nails and horseshoes, a wheelwright repairing an antique wagon, some of the earliest powered washing machines, or a giant steam tractor driving like it did when it was new, Pioneer Acres is certainly a place where history comes alive!
