Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village
Free admission for Canada’s military personnel and their families
Canadian military personnel and their families can show their CFOne cards to enjoy free unlimited admission to Alberta’s provincial museums, historic sites and interpretive centres.
History is brought to life at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, an open-air museum where costumed role-players recreate the life of early Ukrainian pioneers that settled in east central Alberta from 1892-1930. Step back in time to hear real stories of hardships and triumphs in Canada’s oldest and one-time largest bloc settlement of Ukrainian pioneers.
Explore more than 30 relocated and restored structures including a burdei (sod house), a one-room school, grain elevator, blacksmith shop and three churches of Eastern Byzantine Rite. Special events take visitors of all ages back to east central Alberta’s cultural and agricultural roots. Make your experience complete with authentic Ukrainian food.
Open daily from 10 a.m. 5 p.m., May long weekend to Labour Day.
Located only 25 minutes east of Edmonton along Highway 16.
