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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

We found this museum to be much more than we expected. We didn't take the guided tour that was offered, but opted to do our own self guided tour. There are so many carriages that we didn't even know existed. The staff was very friendly. in the restoration area, one nice man answered all of our questions, showed us pictures... More

We spent four hours at this museum and could have spent more. The museum is great with 250 different types of carriages and sleighs. The displays are well put together and informative.

A step back into history to see a very nice variety of carriages and wagons. The tour was well worth the money plus there is a shop where they restore carriages for individuals. Truly fascinating and educational.

For years had driven by. Stopped today and so glad we did!!. An incredible display and presentation. A true gem for this small community. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. And who can go to a carriage museum without a ride!. Great time.
