Take a step back in time at the Fort Assiniboine Museum! The museum is constructed in the classic Hudson’s Bay-style of a trading post and reflects the fur-trading times that helped to establish the area. Artifacts on display outline the progression and development of Fort Assiniboine, which is the second-oldest fort in Alberta. The famous location is mentioned in early historical records dating back to the 1700s. During the Hudson Bay Era (1823-1877), the site was named Fort Assiniboine presumably after the Assiniboine Indians, and was used as a supply and transportation point.
The museum is open to visitors during the summer months and is a great afternoon retreat to learn about some of the key historic movements that helped shape the Woodlands County area and Western Canada.
