Posted by on May 23, 2012 in Exhibits

Trapping is an industry that is firmly rooted in Alberta’s history. Europeans trapping in Western Canada date back to the mid 1600s. As one of the museum’s exhibits, the Trapper’s Cabin gives an in-depth look at what life was like for a trapper in the early 1900’s. Complete with various native animal pelts and trapping equipment, this exhibit gives a hands on approach to lifestyle of a trapper.
