Home » What is a Living History Museum?
A living history museum recreates to the fullest extent the conditions of the culture, natural environment, and offers historical accuracy of a time period.
The experience of the visitor is enhanced with the interaction of costumed interpreters and historians.
As a foundation, we are committed to scholarship, accuracy in interpretation and authenticity to the past and future. We continue to grow and foster community relationships to help fund and support our legacy and contribute to our visitors’ experience.
Your experience is a top priority. Our purpose as a foundation is guided and developed by the scope of the park operating as a ‘Living History Museum.’
At Fort Edmonton Park you are taken back in time starting when the land along the North Saskatchewan River was inhabited by the region’s Indigenous people. Progressing through history one experiences when Fort Edmonton was thriving in the fur trade. You are welcomed to stroll down the streets of 1885, 1905 and 1920. Through the eras, you are encouraged to interact with knowledgeable interpreters as you visit authentic homes and community buildings, ride various forms of transportation, play in the midway and participate in special activities and events.
