The Didsbury Museum has the following collections:

  • Historical photos of the Town of Didsbury, people, buildings, and school classes.
  • Historic books of Didsbury and other places of interest.

The Didsbury Museum volunteers have created a display honoring a local lady who was a war bride from Leeds

Another display that has been expanded is the Indigenous Peoples display. There are many items that have been loaned to the museum by Carolyn Wagner, who grew up in this area. We are also honored to have items from the estate of Amy Wilson.  Amy was the first white nurse to work in northern British Columbia and whose family settled in the Didsbury area.  Amy was laid to rest  in the Didsbury Cemetery.  The next Indigenous display that will be created will honor Didsbury's past fire chief, councilor and Mayor Rick Mousseau and will have artifacts from Jake Peters displayed as well.

There is a section of the museum dedicated to "Didsbury is open for Show Business" We have posters from movies and shows that have been filmed in Didsbury and area for you to check out.
