Facility & Exhibit Tours

Tour Rates: Contact our office to book a date and arrange a guide for you and your group. For a personal guided tour through World of Wildlife a $50 surcharge for minimum one hour is added to regular museum admission rates. We do not provide a Group Rate.

World of Wildlife (WOW): Take a walk on the wild side in our Chester Mjolsness World of Wildlife Exhibit which displays 170 animal mounts from around the world. Accessed through our main reception centre - Pioneer Gallery - our exhibit is hidden behind custom carved wooden doors. With music in the background, a trivial game, take home educational tool, a touch and learn hide table and scrapbooks, we encourage you to call ahead so we can arrange a volunteer to guide you around and answer your questions about conservation, big game hunting, taxidermy, and the pioneer spirit of local resident Chester Mjolsness. 

Pioneer Gallery: The pioneer gallery is currently a self-guided tour. Enter our main reception centre and wander our creatively designed sections which depict life as a Pioneer in the early days of Sundre and its surrounding area. If you are interested in calling ahead we can arrange to have a 'scavenger hunt' made accessible to you, to ensure your visit is both educational and fun. Stay tuned for the Mannequins Alive! Program which will take this tour to the next level.  

Pioneer Village: The pioneer village is currently a self-guided tour. Enter our main reception centre - Pioneer Gallery - and pick up a brochure at the front desk. Make your way out the double green doors and enter our 4 acre village. Each building has a history and is able to be entered. The buildings have been set up to reflect what they may have looked like back pre-1960. 

Behind the Scenes: A new tour conducted by the director of the museum herself. Come behind the scenes and see what it's like to operate a museum. Witness the challenges, celebrate the beauty and embrace the inspirational stories and volunteers that have kept the museum alive for 50 years.

The Sundre & District Historical Society would like to acknowledge that the Sundre & District Museum is located on Treaty 6 and 7 territories which have been the traditional meeting grounds, gathering place and travelling route for the Blackfoot Confederacy, Tsuu t'ina, Stoney Nakota and Region 3 Metis. We also wish to publicly acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis and Inuits whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
