Mountains of stories
The Crowsnest Museum, located in the downtown Coleman National Historic Site of Canada, resides in the original Coleman High School, built in 1936.
Exhibit spaces and rooms highlight the daily lives of Crowsnest Pass and its people, celebrating both the triumph and tragedy of the area, from rum running to tragic explosions, we encourage visitors to learn about the unique industrial history, exciting criminal ties, and explore the unforgettable landscape.
The Crowsnest Museum boasts of a collection of over nearly 100,000 extensive artifacts and archival materials and has a large repository of approximately 60,000 images in its collection. Due to limited storage, the Crowsnest Museum operates as an open-storage or “visible storage” museum, where the majority of our artifacts are on display to the public at all times.
