At the Lacombe Museums, 
there's a new adventure every day

With live demonstrations and guided tours, no two visits are ever the same.

Every day during the summer season, our costumed interpreters entertain & educate guests about the social, economic and cultural affairs of Western Canada’s early development, specific to the greater Lacombe area.
