Jasper-Yellowhead Museum & Archives
Though the Jasper Historical Society held its first meeting way back in 1963, the Jasper-Yellowhead Museum & Archives did not come into its own until 1992, when a temporary gallery opened. The museum expanded slowly over the next few years, staying true to its mission to preserve the history and narratives of the area's original inhabitants.
Size: Three galleries, one displaying permanent exhibits and the other two showing temporary exhibits.
Eye Catcher: The canoe of Donald "Curly" Phillips, the much-beloved outdoorsman who, among other accomplishments, built the Maligne Lake boathouse.
Permanent Mainstay: Musket balls that belonged to David Thompson, who is credited for establishing the fur trade route over Athabasca Pass in 1811.
Don't Miss: Artifacts such as the snowshoes, saddles, and clothing worn by men who once guarded the forests from fires and poaching.
Past Exhibits: The museum often displays local artworks, such as Libby Weir's mountain landscapes and a collection of photograph from 1952, when Marilyn Monroe came to Jasper to film River of No Return.
