OUR VISION

TO PURSUE KNOWLEDGE IN HISTORY

Four Museums With A Rich History And A Treasured Collection

The Cold Lake Museums are four museums that are located on the former site of 42 Radar Squadron, locally known as “Radar Hill” on the north edge of Cold Lake South. The museums include the Cold Lake Air Force Museum, as well as the Oil and Gas, Heritage and Aboriginal Museums. Visitors enter the Air Force Museum first, then proceed through a covered hallway on the upper level to the other three museums. The Cold Lake Museums first opened their doors on July 1, 1998. At this time, only the Heritage and Air Force Museums were open. The Aboriginal Museum first opened on June 21, 2000.

We are located in Cold Lake, Alberta, about 300 kilometres (190 mi) NE of Edmonton.
