Culture | History | Community

The Multicultural Heritage Centre is located in the heart of Stony Plain, AB, and promotes community connections through the operation of a museum, public art gallery, adult and children programming, family events, and cultural and agricultural programs. 

More than 45 Years ago, a group of dedicated community members came together to prevent the demolition of the 1925 Stony Plain High School building. This commitment to the community grew into the Multicultural Heritage Centre which is now 3 large facilities on 6 acres of grounds. The Centre strives to be a community leader in cultural programming and events for the community it serves and visitors from all over the world.

Our year-round programs include:
Art Classes
Community Gardens
Organic Master Gardener Certificate Program
Musical Performances and Plays
Old Fashioned Christmas Event
Artisan Gift Shop – supporting local makers
Easter Egg Hunt
Gallery Openings and Receptions
Ghost Tours
Museum Tours
and much more
