Canadian Grain Elevator Discovery Centre

The Canadian Grain Elevator Discovery Centre is a non-profit museum that hosts a wide range of information about farming, grain production, and the life style of the pioneer days. Situated on the east side of Nanton Alberta these giants of the prairies are few and far between now and we are preserving the rich heritage that the elevators have provided of the past. We provide tour guides to walk you through the elevator, where you will see artifacts and interactive areas such as the wheat grinding display and seed planting where you can join in the experience of these activities. The Discovery Centre can provide you with an appreciation  of the heritage and the farming culture in Alberta.
