Arts & Museums
Sometimes the best or weird discoveries happen while travelling on the road. Roadies have put up many destinations on the travel map and this is one of them. Gopher Hole Museum is quite unassuming as it is the size of a camper van. Located in white-washed cottage, it features quite naturally gophers, that range from small burrowing rodents to ground squirrels. Opened in 1996, these taxidermied animals are set up in various themes in handcrafted wooden boxes which represent as holes. Most of these holes represent culture, businesses or characters such as bank robber, beautician, a fertilizer factory and the Lutheran Church. All of these exhibits are wonderfully supported with background murals.
The Michener House Museum is a house that dates back to 1894. This is popular as the birth place of Governor General, Roland Michener. Now, a house museum, the collection gives an insight into the life of Michener.
This blacksmith shop dates back to 1902 and is now transformed into a museum by Lacombe & District Historical Society. This shop is still extant and most of the equipment is completely functional.
