Donalda is a quiet, attractive village with a population of around 250 people.
Donalda includes a Drop-In Centre, which hosts several public events and activities, a Hotel /Tavern & Restaurant, Bookersville Coffee Shop, a Canada Post Office, Donalda Art Gallery, as well as a local antique / yarn 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.
The Museum is excited to announce that it is expanding its exhibits in the Bank Building /Art Gallery on the 2nd level with completion set for Summer 2020. The upstairs exhibits will feature pioneer artifacts and commercial memorabilia from Donalda and district businesses.
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).
