You think you know Edmonton?
Check out our video series with local hosts showing you sides of Edmonton you may not have seen before.

Arrive 100 years before you depart at Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton's living history museum! Join local Tom Long for a tour of the steam train, 1920s midway, the Hudson's Bay Company Trading Fort and more.

You’ll find plenty of reasons to pick up your pace once you get down to the Fort. There are foods that need tasting, sights that need seeing, and entertainment that needs an audience. Authentic figures from Edmonton’s past all have a part to play in your old-timey experience. Experience four distinct eras in Edmonton’s past: the days of the fur trade, and the pioneer years of 1885, 1905 and 1920. Interact with staff in period costume as they interpret life during Edmonton's early years. Enjoy pioneer high tea, take in classic movies at the vintage Capitol Theatre, or stay over for brunch at the Hotel Selkirk.
