Fort McMurray Heritage Shipyard

Fort McMurray Heritage Shipyard

Fort McMurray, Alberta

Attraction|Landmarks & Buildings

For decades, Fort McMurray was a transportation hub. In the spring, railcars would arrive to unload their wares, which were then transferred to ships that traveled up the Athabasca River, distributing goods to remote communities as far north as the Arctic. Heritage Shipyard celebrates and preserves this essential part of the region’s past with historical vessels, two train cars, a collection of artifacts and the Jack “Torchy” Peden Centre and gift shop. Seasonal-opened May to September, watch for details on the website.
