Bringing Southern Alberta
heritage to life
Collecting and telling compelling stories to educate and inspire
Come experience the rich and interesting history of Brooks, Alberta.
Whether you’re just passing through or want to stay a night or two, the Brooks & District Museum offers fun for the whole family. Start with a self-guided tour through our buildings. Learn about John Ware, the first Black cowboy in the area and Sarah King, a busy midwife who helped deliver 170 babies in her home. Check out our historic one-room schoolhouse, complete with old-fashioned teaching tools, then stop by our 1930’s Garage to be awed by our Ford “A” Roadster Coupe. Taste a sample of delicious homemade ice cream, get guidance from our fully accredited Visitors Information Centre staff, and explore our gift shop for a unique item by a local artist. Then finish the night reminiscing about the best parts of the day in one of our 27 fully-serviced campsites..
We can’t wait to have you as our guest!
