John Walter Museum

10125 97 Avenue, Edmonton   T5K 1L4

The John Walter Museum located in River Valley, was named after one of Edmonton's most exciting settler and industrialist. On Sunday afternoons, the public can choose to visit houses dating back from 1875, 1884, and 1901. This museum makes a great place for school programs, workshops, pioneer birthday parties and activities. If you want to see what John Walters was really like, find the house that contains a history of his past in pictorial form. The other two houses are decorated and furnished as they were in the old days.

The three original homes of early Edmonton entrepreneur John Walter are on display, featuring a number of free Sunday activities such as old-fashioned games, bread-making on a woodstove, and fun, games and lemonade.
