Tipple Park Museum
Capturing our past. Connecting our future.
Hours of Operation
Wednesday to Saturday
10am - 5pm
Tipple Park Museum is nestled in the northern foothills of Alberta bordered by the Pembina and Lobstick Rivers in the hamlet of Evansburg. We are located in Tipple Park, the original location of the coal mine that once operated in Evansburg. The name of the park, and museum, is a nod to the coal tipple that would have once stood behind the museum.
We provide the public with a large picture into our past through a rotating feature exhibit in our main building as well as a collection of historic buildings on our property which include a house that belonged to early European settlers in the area, a CN caboose, a one room schoolhouse, our community's old Scout Hall, a machine shed, and the A-frame, our historic society's old display space.
We hope all visitors get a feel for the "old days", and an appreciation for the stories of industry and agriculture that are common in small communities across Alberta and the prairies when they visit.
Visitors are encouraged to stop by year-round! We are located just minutes from the Pembina Provincial Campground, and like all of our Route to the Rockies partners, are a convenient stop on trips down the Yellowhead Highway.
Tipple Park Museum strives to provide programming to community members of all ages throughout the year. To stay up-to-date on what craft hours, festivals, lectures, and more might be happening at the museum follow us on social media!
