Métis Crossing is the first major Métis cultural interpretive center in Alberta. The development and operation of this facility mirror the core values of the Alberta Métis community including self-sufficiency, respect of elders, the participation of youth, and pride in our culture. Métis Crossing began as a major initiative of the Métis Nation of Alberta. Our mission is to be a premier center for Alberta Métis cultural interpretation, education, gatherings, and business development. Our 512-acre site is designed to engage and excite visitors and is comprised of river lot titles from the original Métis settlers to this region in the late 1800s. Our programming encourages the active participation of visitors in activities that promote appreciation of our people, customs, and celebrations. You can enjoy tours of our museum, historical village, restored homesteads with a farm machinery display and multiple gardens. The nature trail tour along the North Saskatchewan River is very informative and breathtaking. Our scenic site is the perfect place to spend the day, have a picnic, and just relax in the tranquility and beauty of the area.
