Fort McMurray Heritage
Open Tuesday to Saturday: 9am-5pm
We have a collection of buildings, some dating back a century, each one inviting visitors to experience a different aspect of Fort McMurray’s past. Walk through history and explore the stories of those who came before. It’s a vibrant and captivating destination, and an essential part of our community.
For decades, Fort McMurray was a transportation hub. In the spring, rail cars would arrive to unload their wares, which were then transferred to ships that traveled up the Athabasca River, distributing goods to remote communities as far north as the Arctic. Heritage Shipyard celebrates and preserves this essential part of our past with historical vessels, two train cars, a collection of artifacts and the Jack “Torchy” Peden Centre and Gift Shop.
For Grades 1-5
