Donalda is a quiet, attractive village with a population of around 250 people.
Donalda includes a Drop-In Center, which hosts several public events and activities, a Hotel/Tavern & Restaurant, Bookersville Coffee Shop, a Canada Post Office, Donalda Art Gallery, as well as Heather’s Yarn Haven, Coulee Tea House and Coulee Trading post (antique shop).
Donalda has some of the most beautiful scenery in the province. Railway Avenue, the main entrance to the Village, looks out over the Meeting Creek Coulee. The creek itself, named for the place where the Cree and Blackfoot peoples came together during buffalo hunts, is a small stream at the bottom of an ice-gouged valley. Just east of Donalda is the junction of Meeting Creek and the Battle River.
If a Village steeped in history on the edge of magnificent scenery is for you, Donalda is definitely worth the trip. We’ll be waiting for you.
The Museum is located within the Village Complex Building which also includes the Village Office and the Donalda Public Library.
Visitors spend roughly 30 minutes to 1.5 hours in the Museum.
Public washrooms are located within the Village Complex Building during open hours, and beside the Art Gallery Building (closed during the winter months).
