John Walter Museum

The John Walter Museum is located right in the heart of Edmonton’s river valley in Kinsmen Park. The site interprets the life of John Walter and the Strathcona community of Walterdale from 1875 to 1920. Our facility offers a variety of experiences ranging from free self-guided tours to large community events that celebrate historical activities. The park has walking and biking trails, picnic sites, a playground, an outdoor pool and the Kinsmen recreation centre. Spend a day with us and experience life in Walterdale.
