The Galt Museum Archives collects and preserves information of permanent value to the study of the human history of Lethbridge and southwestern Alberta.

Information is collected from both public and private sources, and is available to all researchers.

Visit in person or begin here >>

Please note, browsing through our database is free. Do review our fee schedule if you have specific requests.

The process of capturing and preserving our history is never complete, nor is the history itself “written in stone”. We are always grateful to you for pointing out any errors you may notice. Too often the years go by and the opportunity to make corrections slips away.
