Welcome to the Bonnyville & District Museum

 

We welcome you to experience the inspiring stories and diverse history of the Bonnyville District as you explore our 13 buildings and picturesque 3 acre grounds.

The Bonnyville & District Museum houses an impressive collection of artifacts revalant to the development and settling of the Bonnyville Region.

A 7-meter high statue of Angus Shaw, a late 1700s fur trader and explorer, stands for posterity's sake as a reminder of Shaw's contribution to the fur trade in Western Canada.

On site are two churches, a replica of Durlingville School House, the 1920s Vallée Store, an expansive hospital display, a representation of Angus Shaw's North West Trading post, the Bonnyville water tower, and a quaint, 1907 house that typifies pioneer life as it was in the early years of settlement in Bonnyville.
