The Heritage Discovery Centre (HDC) is an exciting interpretive museum located on the lower level of Centre 2000. The vast history of the Peace Region is portrayed from the Mesozoic Era, the last Ice Age, Aboriginal and Metis settlement, the arrival of the pioneers and subsequent development of local resources. Visitors can stroll through the galleries at their own pace and learn about our history through interactive displays and survivor games. HDC is open 7 days a week, year-round and admission is always FREE!

Great place to visit as a family with young children. The dinosaur area is very entertaining. The museum does a great job of making learning fun with their interactive time line.
