Our Museums

The Prince Albert Historical Society operates four museums in three locations within Prince Albert.  Follow the links below to learn more about the exhibits and collections at each museum.

  • Historical Museum: This museum was Prince Albert's firehall for many years.  The building also houses the Society's office and our archives and is located at the north end of Central Avenue.
  • John & Olive Diefenbaker Museum National Historic Site of Canada: Located in the former residence of John & Olive Diefenbaker.
  • Historical Building Museums: Two buildings, located adjacent to the Tourism Centre are museums operated by the Society:
    • Rotary Museum of Police & Corrections: The original guard room for the "F" division of the North-West Mounted Police.
    • Evolution of Education Museum: The Claytonville one-room school house.

The Nisbet Church and the Blockhouse buildings are also managed by the Prince Albert Historical Society.    These buildings were constructed in the 1870s and 1880s.  The buildings were located in Kinsmen Park but were dismantled in 2018 as they required extensive repairs.  A campaign was initiated in 2019 to raise funds for reconstruction of the buildings.  The new location for the buildings will be west of the Historical Museum.  To donate funds towards reconstruction, please use our GoFundMe page or contact the PAHS at 306 764-2992.  All donations over $20 will be issued a tax receipt.
