St. Albert History Gallery

Opened April 1, 2017 at the Musée Héritage Museum (St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street, St. Albert)

The St. Albert History Gallery is a space for diverse stories that touch on our long and complex past and our current place in the world. Each year, we change aspects of the gallery to bring in new narratives and new objects from our collections, and to highlight stories from the community.

It is a space where we can answer questions about important issues like residential schools and immigration, as well as the history of the Mission and City of St. Albert. In our rapidly changing world, it is important to remember that our past can teach us lessons which help us to enjoy and appreciate our community, understand current events and face future challenges.


A Woman’s Place

How the strength of women laid the foundation for a city

December 6–March 11, 2023 at the Musée Héritage Museum (St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street, St. Albert)

Life for women who built and sustained our regional communities was complex and challenging.  Women stepped up when times were tough, running families, businesses and supporting the community. The difficulties and hardships they faced were met with strength, determination and compassion.

What jobs did women take on, outside of the home and off the farm?  How did they support each other to get through the challenges of raising families? What organizations did they establish to create community?  How did they respond in times of crisis?

Through artifacts and photographs from our collections A Woman’s Place, introduces you to the lives of St. Albert’s remarkable community builders.

This fascinating exhibition reminds us of the debt we owe them for the lives we live now.
