Crowsnest Museum & Archives
The Crowsnest Museum, located in the downtown Coleman National Historic Site of Canada, resides in the original Coleman High School, built in 1936. Exhibit spaces and rooms highlight the daily lives of Crowsnest Pass and its people, celebrating both the triumph and tragedy of the area, from rum running to tragic explosions, we encourage visitors to learn about the unique industrial history, exciting criminal ties, and explore the unforgettable landscape.
The Crowsnest Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and archival material. The artifact collection contains objects from the area that help tell the cultural history of the Crowsnest Pass. The archival holdings includes newspapers, church records, mining information, maps, blueprints, and much more. Our archive is home to 300,000 photographs and negatives. This includes images from the renowned Gushul family collection.
The collection helps preserve the history and tells the story of the Crowsnest Pass. At this time the collection (both artifact and archival) is only searchable within the Museum.
