AAA Editor Notes

Donalda & District Museum is at Main St. and Railway Ave. More than 900 lamps ranging from the antique bicycle variety to colorful living room types are displayed. Some 40 tiny courting lamps, which hold only an hour's worth of fuel and were used in the 1800s to signal the end of a suitor's visit, also can be seen. In addition more than 4,000 artifacts depicting the area's history and the Métis community are exhibited. An art gallery housed in a 1928 bank building, a 1909 railway station and a creamery also are on-site. Self-guiding tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
