The Scandia Eastern Irrigation District Museum is an open-air museum in Southern Alberta, Canada. The museum includes a historic 1925 Alberta Wheat Pool grain elevator, Bow Slope Stockyard, and displays of how irrigation has affected the prosperity of the area.[1] The museum is part of Eastern Irrigation District Historical Park, which also includes a blacksmith shop, barn, general store, stock yards and river ferry.

Jenner Station[edit]

In 2011-2012 the community and museum society moved the historic 103 year old Canadian Pacific Railway station from the hamlet of Jenner to their park in Scandia.[2] The station has since been restored and is now used as a theater and community gathering place.[3]
