Southern Alberta has a rich history, filled with inventors, collectors, pioneers, bootleggers and more. This collection of history does not simply include pictures and the items used during those times. Coyote Flats Pioneer Village is ¬†an assembly¬†of buildings used by the people who shaped our history. Through the collection of buildings, artifacts and stories, the history of the region’s early settlers lives on¬†. Walk the streets¬†and experience¬†the history written about in books and witness the activities that kept our ancestors busy throughout their days.

The Coyote Flats Pioneer Village also has a very large¬†collection of tractors spanning the entire history of Alberta’s agricultural development. This industry is the foundation to Alberta’s success as a province. See the very tractors that plowed the fields and cultivated today’s¬†thriving industry.

Welcome to our Village!

    • Hi Eva; congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and thanks for your inquiry.

      For formal wedding pictures we charge $ 100, but the museum is yours – especially at that time of the year…

      Please call ahead to confirm, just so we can have someone on-site to meet and great you.

    • Hello, Marshall!

      Volunteers are always needed, so “come on down”!

      No requirements, really: you tell us what you like to do, what hours you are available, and we work it out from there…
      I am usually here from 9 AM to 4:30 MON-FRI.

  1. Good morning…

    My name is Gerald…I’m the Activity Coordinator for a senior facility. I would like to know if you’re open in September? I would like to bring a group of about 12 & need to know if you’re wheelchair accessible. Also do you serve food & have a space to eat. Thank you.


    • Hello, Gerald! Thank you for your inquiry; yes we love to host seniors’ tours. Probably half the museum is wheelchair accessible. What we’ve done in the past is have two smaller groups, and when the folks are getting a little tired of walking, we actually drive the bus through the village, with a tour guide narrating the buildings and sights that are just outside the windows. I will call you momentarily as well — we’ll see you in September. PIETER

  2. Looking to track down a copy of the history of Coyote Flats. My relatives are from Billings township Manitoulin Island and relocated to the Coyote Flats area in 1910. The Foster Brothers remained there into the 1980’s. They were my grandmothers brothers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Bpatterson@osl.org 416-629-2890 Thanks in advance looking forward to visiting your museum next year BP

    • Hello, Brian; we have two books for sale; one is the history of Coyote Flats museum (put out in 2016, which has some information on early settlers) and the other is a book called ‘Coyote Flats, Vol. II’, which has a certain amount of history on early settlers, the area, etc. It was published in 1976.

      Each book is $ 25 CDN.

      Hope that Helps! PIETER

  3. Hi Pieter,

    I was hoping to pick up cataloguing
    again. I did a few years ago and I am also familiar with the catalogue computer program..,
    I was hoping to stop in on Monday..,

  4. I see your site needs some fresh & unique content. Writing manually is
    time consuming, but there is solution for this hard task.

    Just search for; Miftolo’s tools rewriter

  5. Do you have tents available to rent for a wedding? Also how much is the upcoming hay bale maze. We have a bus group coming from out of town – is there a group rate for the hay bale maze?

    • Hi Sara; thanks for your inquiry!

      We currently do NOT have tents for rent, sorry!

      The folks organizing the Medieval Faire were unable to get Straw Bales for the maze, so they will have one made out of plywood/tarps. Tickets to the Medieval Faire are $ 15/person/day ($ 5 for youth; children 10 and under free), and that gets you onto the site to see jousting, sword-fight demonstrations, archery, food, beer garden, fun & games.

      Maybe we’ll see you there? PIETER

  6. Do you have a Medieval Faire every year? Just heard about now. Granddaughters drove down to Brooks for one and it was far. So if you have one so close by we would definitely attend next summer 2018. We are from Claresholm and Calgary.

    • Hi Joanna; thanks for comment. This was the first year, and although it was a fun affair, and well attended, the group putting it on lost money on it. We are working with them to see if we can make this an annual affair!! Please check our website early next year for our ‘line-up’ of events, and/or our facebook page : Coyote Flats Pioneer Village.

    • YES & NO! We actually do not have specific classes; anyone and everyone can come and bring their vehicle, including bikes! There is a draw for driver’s choice and people’s choice. That may be a rat-rod, hot-rod, muscle car, custom, antique, project… and bike! Hope to see you there! PIETER

  7. We are on holiday from the UK for that week, and would love to come on Saturday te 25th may, as we also own a vintage tractor. What is the address/ location please?
    Fingers crossed we can come,
    Thank you,

    Tina and Roland.
