So good! If you enjoy history about horses, this is an excellent place to tour. This museum is filled with examples of what was "the" way to get around in style prior to the automobile. Covers what a coachman and footman did. How carriages were designed to allow those of society to "be seen" etc. So many restorations. Well worth the trip. Plan for a full day in order to get the entire museum covered as there is so much to see and read. The movie is worth the 15 minutes too!

The carriage museum was the only reason I went to Cardston. Was nice to see. Too bad I wasn't able to visit at a different time of year and see the horses and go for a drive. (Would be nice if they gave a discount for these times when one can't do or see quite as much).
Staff were great.

Thanks for coming I am glad you enjoyed your visit. We do not include the fee for a carriage ride in our admission, but we do keep at least two horses on site for visitors to see out at the barn. We know a carriage ride makes the visit even better, but we do not have the staff or budget to provided this service in the off season. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Your pleasant surprise will start as you pull into the parking lot. The grounds are beautiful and elegant. As you enter, you realize this is something special. Every sort of carriage and horse-drawn item you can imagine is in here. This will require some time as the inside is done as nicely as the outside. This is not just old stuff. This is beautifully restored and well organized history. Easy to get around....all indoors, clean neat and reasonable. A highlight is the workshop where they do restorations for customers. They will take a few moments to talk to you about their work and they are clearly very good at it. This was a great stop as we returned from Canada to the US. I could go back here and spend the day. If you enjoy old school craftsmanship, you will love this place.

I love going to museums especially if you will learn more about history. I like vintage/antique stuff because it will tell you a lot of stories from the past. I saw a huge collection of carriage over the years! Some were even allowed to ride on so that you can take a picture. For 25$, it's not bad Coz they posted a lot of information even during war time with the use of carriage. It's very educational and we even tried to ride a carriage with big horses. I will treat my family here next time.

Having heard of this, I was glad we finally got a chance to walk around and here both the director's presentation and the film in the theatre. One of the gems of Alberta.
