Final Phase is Complete

Galloway Station Museum and Travel Centre is proud to present the completition of the final phase of the exhibit space.

Heavy Industries in Calgary pre-fabricated all of the new displays and shipped them to Edson where their team of talented and creative people got to work in putting the peices together to complete the space. Research was done in house and artifacts that dress the displays were donated by locals from Edson and area. 

The new space features a general store, a 1940's gasoline station, blacksmith, livery, an 1873 printing press used in Edson in 1912 and a whole lot more! Come by and check out what Galloway has in store for you!

Yellowhead Rotary Arts Festival at the Galloway

The Galloway Station Museum and Travel Centre was proud to host the photography portion of the Yellowhead Rotary Arts Festival (YRAF) at the end of April.

Veteran photographers and amateurs alike displayed their works across the Shell multi-use. The photographer's works were then adjudicated by Sheree Zielke who has much experience in the field. Each participant recieved invaluable constructive critisim on their pieces. She looked at each piece and judged their focus, composition and exposure, the 3 areas she thinks are most important in a photograph. 

The Vanier grade 5 class also submitted creative photos on bubbles that they took over glass in oil. They have definitely been a crowd favorite!

Travel Local-Jasper Museum and Archives

A bit off the beaten track, the Jasper Museum and Archives is a fantastic journey of almost 10 000 years in the Athabasca Pass.  
The Jasper Museum Historical Gallery includes exhibits on the fur trade, the railways, early tourism, the park and its warden service, as well as the history of the town of Jasper itself. This small museum packs a punch, with loads of information, so plan to stay awhile and take in all the exhibits. They also have two rotating galleries that contain the same high quality exhibits as the permanent display does. Their gift shop has a wide variety of history books, art and gift ideas with a historical theme.

Expect to be impressed! The museum is located on the Pyramid Lake road in the town of Jasper.
