A pioneer village in Alberta is the perfect stop on a road trip for a wicked history lesson on the province’s roots, with a massive 30,000+ artifacts to marvel at.

Located in Pincher Creek, the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village covers more than six acres, the equivalent of more than two city blocks of land, and has so much to check out.

Its Tripadvisor page touts its more than 30 buildings and 30,000+ artifacts, so we bet you could spend a good chunk of time here and find something that will pique your interest.

The majority of the buildings in the village are authentic, restored, and furnished with period furniture.

You can check out artifacts and everyday tools used by the owners and inhabitants of that time, and they are displayed in each building.

There are no ropes or glass preventing you from getting up close and personal with the history, but be sure not to touch or disturb the artifacts.
