Collections Quick Search
The Galt Museum & Archives has been collecting artifacts for over 50 years. In that time, some 20,000 human history objects have been collected,
each with its own compelling story.
This public, tangible and intellectual resource is an important means by which we can illuminate the culture and history of
Lethbridge and southwestern Alberta, providing residents and visitors with "a sense of place".
Distinct facets of southwestern Alberta’s history are all represented to varying degrees in the collection, including:
- the indigenous population
- ethnic diversity
- art and culture
This resource exists for the enjoyment and education of the public. We invite you to search our holdings.
