Tipple Park Museum is operated by the Pembina Lobstick Historical Society in partnership with Yellowhead County. The museum has seen many iterations throughout its life, but one thing hasn't changed, a commitment to community.
Our museum began in the old Scout Hall in which the Pembina Lobstick Historical Society displayed items of interest. Today the Scout Hall sits among our historical buildings and houses a display of communication and community related artifacts.
The Scout Hall was soon outgrown and the historical society obtained a train station, not the Evansburg Station, but still a building of historical significance that would provide the society with more room to operate.
In 2016 the current building that houses the museum was completed. Yellowhead County provided a modern, multi-use facilty which not only houses our archive and collections, but also features a full kitchen and boardroom that community members can rent for functions. The current building is open to the public year-round. During opening hours visitors can view displays, play games, use the wifi, or grab a cup of coffee. We are not only a museum, but a community gathering place that strives to provide our community with a place to meet friends, or spend time after school.
The current building features solar panels and geothermal heating. The solar panels can been seen on the east side of the roof, and the geothermal heating can of course be enjoyed inside!
Pembina Lobstick Historical Society engages and builds community identity by promoting the people and cultures of the Pembina-Lobstick are through educational programs, exhibits, oral and written histories, and locally produced arts and crafts.
Like the Pembina and Lobstick rivers that change with the seasons but continue to flow, we will change with the seasons and continue to flow in cultural, historical, educational directions within our community.
