Double Tree Village Museum

“Step Back In Time” and enjoy one of the largest historic villages in Alberta. Our U-shaped street includes 25 buildings of the early 1900’s, everything from a church, to a tepee, and everything in between, including a picnic area.

We have been honoured to win a Heritage award and a beautification award from the Red Deer County for our excellent variety of flowers and area artifacts. A beautiful Belgian team of horses can take you on a hay ride out to Hidden Lake to view the birds, wildlife, and wildflowers of the area. Everyone is welcome including families, groups, and schools.
