Dickson Store Museum has once again been awarded the “Recognized Museum” designation from Alberta Museums Association (AMA).

Dickson Store Museum voluntarily participated in the program offered by AMA which involved providing evidence to a panel of museum professionals that demonstrated how the institution meets the AMA’s definition of a museum.

Dickson’s facility was one of the first museums in Alberta to be awarded the status at the inception of the program in 2006. Museums are awarded the status for five years and then they must reapply.

The museum offers school tours, guided tours, special events, exhibits and houses a collection of objects and archives.
