Content rich displays, video documentaries and hands-on exhibits give visitors a multi-sensory perception of what life what like for those who called Grande Prairie and area home. The Heritage Discovery Centre is also home to ‘Piper’, a life-size, animatronic dinosaur who represents the Pachyrhinosaurus species discovered in the Peace Country.

The Kin Gallery is a flexible exhibit space which changes regularly to feature travelling and custom exhibits such as the “Don Everton Radio Collection” (2016) and “Horses, Wagons & Cowboys: The Chuckwagon Story” (2017).”
