Rocky Mountain House Museum 


Gift Shop Parking Washrooms Wheelchair

The Rocky Museum tells the story of the pioneers of the Rocky Mountain House and area. The Rocky Museum owes its beginnings to a group of ex-Rocky Mountain House residents who found, after moving away, that they missed the people of their old community. In 1970, the first Rocky mountain House Museum Reunion was held. In 1973, a society was formed - the Rocky Mountain House Reunion and Historical Society. The Society's first major accomplishment was a history book about the Rocky Mountain House area. This book was completed in 1977. The Rocky Mountain House Museum followed afterwards in 1983.

Permanent Exhibit
