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!
