Museum & Heritage Buildings
Over 60 heritage buildings have been restored and reconstructed since the site was designated a Provincial Heritage Site in 1961. You’ll be surprised at the hidden treasures you’ll find, telling visual stories of days gone by. In fact, you might even think that the 1890s residents had just stepped out to run a quick errand! Take the time to check out various sheds, outbuildings and open buildings around the site.
At the newly-renovated Wasa Hotel Museum, you can see informative displays of the history and heritage of Fort Steele, the surrounding region, and the people who lived here. The Wasa Hotel Museum, which opened in 1967, is a replica of the Wasa Hotel which once stood in the community of Wasa, just north of Fort Steele.
