Lac Cardinal Pioneer Village MuseumThe Lac Cardinal Pioneer Museum is a pioneer village that features restored structures, artefacts, and photographs that documents the settlement period of the west of Peace River from the 1920s to the 1940s.

The Lac Cardinal Pioneer Village Museum Society was founded in 1988 to develop the Lac Cardinal Pioneer Museum. Olsen HouseThe work began in 1990 when the homes of Wilcox, Mowry, later the Olson, McKie, the Strong Creek Hall, MD office, cook shack, Hasell School, Church, a pump house and an administration building were relocated to the museum site. The general store, blacksmith shop, and log barn are replicas, which were built with lumber and shingles produced in a 1920s saw mill and a 100 year old shingle mill that are on site. All the buildings have working artefacts pertaining to 1920 to 1940s period.
