The “Modern” Flammable Home Tour

We are open for tours! For groups of 10 or more, please call us at 780-998-1783 to book your tour slot.

Curious about combustibles in historic homes? Have we got a tour for you!

As folks attempted to modernize homes from the late 1800s into the 1950s and 60s, unfortunate fire-related mishaps and tragedies occurred.

Learn more about the “modern” products, building materials, and practices that led to the fire-related follies in homes of the time period.  Pre-registration is appreciated (15-20 participants maximum), please contact the museum by July 12. Tickets can be purchased on the day, if still available.



"Amazing learning connections were made between our study of past and present and your program. Lunch facilities were great. The games and hands on activities we played were so much fun. So many happy faces to be spending time in jail! The tour of village were also extremely well done. Again, the children were kept engaged and involved. The mock trial was great fun. I can’t say enough about your program It is absolutely fanstastic. Your staff does an outstanding job leading the children."
