About This Park

Heritage Park Museum is a Municipal Heritage Site and Museum operated by the Terrace and District Museum Society. The Museum sits on 1.73 acres of scenic park land that was originally the first dairy farm in Terrace and later the site of a large WWII army hospital. Ten different buildings sit on the site, 8 of these are original log structures relocated to the Museum grounds from various locations in the Terrace area. Within each of the buildings there are artefact displays exhibiting the local settlement history of Terrace and the surrounding area. Displays highlight industries such as logging, mining, trapping, farming and tourism, as well as the general ways of life of newcomers to this area.
