Welcome to the Western Canadian Heritage Foundation and the Western Canadian Heritage Museum website. To find out more about the Foundation and the online Museum, please visit the About page.

We invite you to visit our numerous portfolios in our online Museum depicting many historical photos in the Gallery.

If you have suggestions for new portfolios, we invite you to make those suggestions.
