There are several other museums, historic buildings and heritage sites throughout the Swan Valley that document and celebrate our rich history. Built in 1902, Harley House is a rare example of a Red River frame structure in western Manitoba and also one of the oldest surviving homes in the Swan Valley.

The Lumax Family Heritage Museum features many treasured items, dating from as far back as 1898 and Cowan’s restored one-room school house offers a small window into the past.


Festivals and events provide the the opportunity to see live demonstrations and participate in interactive experiences.
