Nordegg Heritage Centre
The Nordegg Heritage Centre: Museum & Visitor Information opens for the May Long Weekend and closes on the August Long weekend. When we’re open, we’re open every day from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm!
In the Heritage Centre you can find out about our local history, our local attractions and stop by the Miners Café for some of their famous pie or pop into the Coliseum gift shop for local artisan gifts. This is also where you get tickets for the Brazeau Collieries Mine Site tours.
The Nordegg Mine Tours run on weekends (Saturday & Sunday) 10:00 & 14:00 between May Long Weekend and Canada Day. From Canada Day to the August Long weekend tours run every day at 10:00 & 14:00.
The tours are a two hour long walking tour of the site. There are two different tours.
The Auxiliary Building tour (Upper Mine Site) ventures into all the shops on site that supported the mine, into the houses on site and into a mine entrance. These tours are at 10:00 on odd numbers days and at 2:00 on even numbered days.
The Briquette Plant tour (Lower Mine Site) takes you through the entire briquetting process and the plant that produced the Brazeau Briquettes. These tours are at 10:00 on even numbers days and at 2:00 on odd numbered days.
