Nordegg Interpretive Centre

Brazeau colliery, Nordegg, Alberta, established by Martin Nordegg.  ca. 1913-1914. At the Nordegg Interpretive Centre, visitors can learn about the early Canadian history of coal mining. The Nordegg Interpretive Centre is located on the access road in Nordegg. The governing authority is the Nordegg Historical Society. 

The collection at the museum is abundant, and includes many photographs, artifacts and archives, which help visitors learn more about the community and history of Nordegg and area, as well as the coal mining industry in Alberta from 1911 to 1955. 

There are also guided tours in the summer of the old mine site and the buildings and structures that remain today. The society continues to restore and stabilize the mine structures to continually offer more to the people who come to see the interpretive centre.
