Attraction|Museum & Historic Site
Heritage Acres is a working museum, which is operated by the Old Man River Antique Equipment and Threshing Club. The museum consists of a 180-acre site that was established in 1988 after the Oldman River Dam was built. The Club is dedicated to promoting an interest in and preserving the heritage of the agricultural industry in Southern Alberta from 1880-1960. The museum has been collecting, restoring, conserving, and demonstrating artifacts since 1988. A significant number of relocated heritage buildings are onsite for guests to see. What makes Heritage Acres Farm Museum unique is, due to the size of the property they can demonstrate equipment that is 100 years old. So present and future generations may have the opportunity to experience early pioneer life in an agricultural community. The museum is a place where people of all ages gather to have fun in a hands-on experience. It’s not uncommon for quests to see vintage tractor or horse and buggies to be travelling throughout the museum property during their many summer events.
