About The Brooks and District Museum and Historical Society

Alberta’s Centennial City

Alberta’s Centennial City has a history built on agriculture, oil and gas, and pure willpower. Along the way, Brooks & District was home to many influential and interesting figures with fascinating stories worth telling. At the Brooks & District Museum we’ve collected and preserved those stories, presenting Southern Alberta Cultural Heritage to visitors since we first opened our doors in 1974.

Join us for a journey through time and dive deeper into the rich history of the area. Come out feeling inspired, educated, and eager to visit again.

Looking for a group tour? Contact us and let’s chat about how we can accommodate your school, summer camp, nursing home, or other organization.


The Brooks and District Museum aims to educate and provide diverse learning opportunities for the public to engage with local cultural heritage by collecting, interpreting, and depicting distinctive stories of the area..


We will improve, enhance, and augment the Brooks and District Museum for the education and benefit of the community and generations to come through exhibits and programs that preserve our unique cultural heritage and by offering opportunities for diverse engagement with all populations.
