Redwater Museum is tucked away, in a small strip mall, between the Public Library and a restaurant. The nondescript frontage hides the wonderful adventure you’ll find inside.
The Hidden Gem of Redwater
As you walk through the doors you’ll be transported back in time to the homesteading era of the Redwater area and a history of the one room schools that dotted the landscape. The pictures and artifacts take you on a journey from wilderness to an emerging hamlet & Boomtown Alberta, when oil was discovered near Redwater.
Redwater Museum and Tourist Information is open during the summer season and by appointment any time of the year. A visit to our museum is only a phone call away.
A visit to the “hidden gem of Redwater” will be both entertaining and educational.
The history and ethnic diversity of those hardy pioneers who settled the Redwater wilderness is captured in pictures, artifacts and stories throughout the museum.
In 1948 oil was discovered on the Hilton Cook farm, near Redwater. The resulting boom changed this sleepy hamlet forever.
Redwater Museum has captured the story of “When Oil Hit Redwater” and can be viewed at the Virtual Museum of Canada’s website.
The museum houses a collection of over 4000 enlarged photographs pertaining to Redwater and the people of this area. We also have books and records in our archives to assist historians and genealogical researchers.
Our military display focuses on our veterans of World War II, with a large collection of pictures of local veterans. The museum is establishing a book of tribute to honour our veterans.
Sandhills Natural Area
The Sandhills Area boasts one of the largest sand dune fields in the region. It can be found in the northeast section of Sturgeon County, straight east of Redwater, near the North Saskatchewan River. Its rolling sand hills are ideally suited for recreational vehicle day use and the area contains numerous natural trails and habitat indicative of the region. It is used extensively by OHV riders but is also environmentally significant and used for both conservation and recreation purposes.
To arrive at this area:
Take the Manning Freeway or Highway 21 to Fort Saskatchewan. Continue east on Hwy 15 to the junction of Hwy 830. Turn left (north) on Hwy 830 to Hwy 38. Turn left on Hwy 38, cross the Vinca Bridge and continue west until you see the sign for Victoria Trail. Turn right onto Victoria Trail and follow the road for approx. 2 miles (3.2 km) to Range Road 205. Turn left onto RR 205 and head north approx. 3 mi (5 km) to the staging area.
OR if you are in the Redwater area
If you enter Redwater from Highway 28 you can continue through Town and head straight east 10 km on Hwy 644. Turn south on Rg. Rd. 205 to Staging Area #1. If you travel another 1.6 km south you will reach Staging Area #2.
