Welcome to the Dickson Store Museum
“Where The Past Comes To Life”
Originally opened as a general store 1909 and restored in 1991 The Dickson Store Museum is a unique destination for any trip to Central Alberta. Dickson Store supplied many necessities to the surrounding area for decades, everything from candy, dry goods, and hardware to livestock and a postal service. It was an integral business for the community that settled here and today is an important reminder of Alberta’s pioneering history.
The Dickson Store Museum is now set in a 1930’s style General Store, boasting tours by costumed interpreters, old fashioned candy, and of course Foothills Ice Cream. The former Post Office is now a Gift Shop that features local artists as well as unique souvenirs and books. Our large yard and picnic tables are a great place to enjoy a family picnic together or enjoy the sun with a delicious ice cream. Our beautifully restored museum, a designated provincial historic resource, truly allows you to feel the past while you explore the many artifacts in the store, lumber shed and cabin outside, and living quarters of the Christiansen family upstairs.
We invite you to see for yourself how the past comes to life in Dickson, Alberta.
