It’s open Monday to Saturday: 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday: Noon to 4 p.m.
  • The High River Agricultural Society is a rich source for the history of farming and ranching. In 2013, the Society opened the High River Agricultural Society Museum which is based on the history and influence that Ford and the oil & gas sector had on the agricultural way of life from the early 1900s to the 1960s and beyond. It has a huge selection of antique tractors, vehicles and farm equipment on display – a must see.
  • Through the years, the historic Wales Theatre has seen it all, from the primitive “storeroom theatres” and early films, through silent movies and to the talkies and technicolor, cinemascope to widescreens and now digital with a dolby surround sound system. Today the Wales Theatre retains many of its original design charms and features one of the last free-standing balconies in Canada.
