Historic Markerville Creamery Museum

In 1902, the Markerville Creamery opened its doors bringing prosperity to the tiny Icelandic hamlet. Under the direction of Dan Morkeberg, many butter production awards were won. The Creamery became a leader within the agricultural sector. The Creamery closed its doors in 1972, and the Museum opened in 1986, housing artifacts in the original building. Interpreters guide you through the butter making process and share secrets that exist within the walls.

The Creamery Museum offers Icelandic delights & ice cream in the coffee shop, gift shop, an interactive barn for kids and a historic walk interpreting the business sector that was prevalent in the area.

Nestled on the banks of the Medicine River, Markerville hosts 3 historic sites and beautiful gardens. Central Alberta's Hidden Gem!
