Nose Creek Valley Museum - City of Airdrie 1904

/ Nose Creek Valley Museum

2,000 years of history. 20,000 artefacts. 10 exhibits. One little museum.

Nose Creek Valley Museum represents over 2,000 years of local history, providing an interesting glimpse into the historical aspects of Airdrie, Nose Creek, and surrounding areas.

*Important information regarding COVID safety measures*

While Nose Creek Valley Museum has different revenue streams, meeting room rentals have been one of our best and most appreciated streams. We have not been able to rent our rooms with any sort of regularity since March 2020, which has resulted in a noticeable loss of revenue, and will be felt for a long while. With hope towards our continued existence, Nose Creek Valley Museum has decided to opt into the Alberta Government’s Restrictions Exemptions Program (REP).

Visitors to the gallery must provide one of the following, along with government identification:

• Proof of vaccination
• Proof of a privately paid negative test taken within 72 hours
• Documentation of a medical exemption

If a person or group is interested in renting a meeting room, please email to discuss how your event can be successfully held, within the new guidelines.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Nose Creek Valley Museum - The General Store

/ The General Store

The first general store in Airdrie was built around 1901. The store and post office were on the ground floor, and the owner’s living quarters were upstairs.

We know you are curious. Don’t wonder anymore.

Your greatness is not what you have, but what you give.

Cam Clark Ford - Nose Creek Valley Museum

I love this place. There’s so much history that Airdrie residents aren’t aware of and the museum strives to avail us of such knowledge. Some great sections for students to learn from and for adults to appreciate. They also have meeting rooms for rent.
