Rocky Mountain House Museum

Step into the past at the Rocky Museum! Sit in the desks in our 1923 Glacier School, and imagine what life was like in the homestead days, when children sat two to a desk to keep warm in the winter mornings. Check out the Meadows Forestry cabin, and read the stories from the days when the lumberjacks and sawmills kept the area around Rocky Mountain House humming. The Rocky Museum showcases artifacts from the early 1900’s including a doctor’s buggy. You need to see our two floors of exhibits inside, which include our 1916 Amherst Player Piano, our barbed wire collection, the Killico General Store exhibit, the military exhibit, our farmhouse kitchen, our history book library and much more. Challenge yourself with our scavenger hunt! Find treasures in our Gift Shop, including locally made art, indigenous designed gift ware, souvenirs and history books. Join us for live demonstrations of blacksmithing, weaving, rope making and spinning on Museum Day, the last Saturday in May. Enjoy a picnic lunch in the W. Helen Hunley Memorial Park right next to the Rocky Museum.
