Anthony Henday Museum

Anthony Henday

The Anthony Henday Museum is located on Main Street, Delburne, across from the park. The governing authority is the Anthony Henday Historical Society. The collection at the museum includes artefacts from the pioneer days, such as coal mining, agriculture, and household items. The museum itself is housed within an old CNR Railway Station and there are four floors of displays in the Delburne CNR water tank tower building. The museum has a replica of a homesteader’s shack, a CNR caboose, and a machine shed housing old machinery. The museum offers a Mother’s Day pancake breakfast and celebrates Homesteader’s Day with demonstrations.
