The Museum

The Crowsnest Historical Society was formed in 1973 by a group of concerned citizens who recognized the need to preserve the unique cultural history of the Crowsnest Pass which was quickly disappearing. Over the next decade those dedicated volunteers banded together to start the Museum, publish the

local history and help educate the community and visitors about the Pass. The Museum was officially opened in 1985 and has served the community ever since.
