If you’re a lover of Christmas and art (and who isn’t, really?) it might be time to book a trip to southern Alberta for a visit to the Remington Carriage Museum.
Known as THE place to go in Alberta for the “authentic experience with 19th and early 20th century horse-drawn transportation,” each December the museum switches gears to focus on local art. Artists from the Cardston region come together at the museum to display their art dedicated to a Christmas theme.
The show runs the entire month of December, where visitors can enjoy the sights of specially decorated Christmas trees, paintings and drawings on display.
This year’s theme of the art show is “anything goes” giving freedom to the many participating artists. More than 20 trees and various pieces of art like the one up top will fill the museum foyer for the entire month. Note that while the show is free, regular museum admission rates still apply.
The Remington Carriage Museum houses the largest collection of horse drawn vehicles in North America, with more than 270 carriages, buggies, wagons and sleighs. The museum also boasts a working stable, a theatre, a cafeteria and a gift shop. Situated on twenty acres of prime parkland in Lee Creek valley, the pastoral setting completes the picture of a long-past era.
