Located at 7701 – 18th Avenue in the community of Coleman, the Crowsnest Museum is an integral part of the heritage of Crowsnest Pass. It is operated by the Crowsnest Historical Society, which reopened the 1936 former Coleman High School building as a museum in 1985. Extensive indoor and outdoor exhibits showcase the social, architectural and coal mining history of the Crowsnest Pass, and the museum also hosts the region’s historical archives. In addition to casual visits, the museum offers guided tours and educational programs.
The museum is also planning future off-site exhibits and heritage developments in cooperation with the Crowsnest Heritage Initiative. One such example is the historic Alberta Provincial Police barracks building.
The museum’s own website (external site) contains heritage and events information as well as its hours of operation, admission fees, and museum contact information.
