Enjoy Some Music. See a Play. Go to a Museum.

Sometimes a round of golf or attacking the challenges of the great outdoors can tire you out. Enjoy some down time by experiencing the pleasure of our West Country culture.

Sundre Pioneer Village Museum & the World of Wildlife

Sundre and the West Country area was settled by hard working folk. This is the story of Alberta, of Canada. Although Sundre is itself a relatively young community as far as world history goes, we have a fascinating Western culture of ranching, rodeos, and taming the wild. Our museum will give you a glimpse into this past.
The Chester Mjolsness World of Wildlife, part of the Sundre Museum, offers a collection of preserved animals from around the world - come check out this unique and unexpected display during your time here!
