About

Fort Dauphin Museum is surrounded by a wooden palisade, suggestive of an 18th century fur trade post and features archaeological, fur trade and pioneer artifacts. A trapper’s cabin, a trading post, a blacksmith’s shop, a pioneer log house, a one-room schoolhouse, a church, and the main log building are located inside palisade walls. The Parkland Archaeological Laboratory – Western Canada’s first built in 1985 – has catalogued over 80,000 artifacts, and is home to over 10,000.
