St. Albert Grain Elevator Park is an open-air museum which features two historic grain elevators and a reconstructed railway station.

The two elevators are a 1906 Brackman-Ker Milling Company Elevator and a 1929 Alberta Wheat Pool Elevator, both which were designated as Provincial Historic Resources in January 2007. [1] The park also features the St. Albert Railway Station and Visitor Centre, a replica of the former 1909 St. Albert Canadian Northern Railway railway station, built in 2005.

The museum is operated by the Arts & Heritage Foundation of St. Albert. Guided tours of the Grain Elevators and Railway Station are available from May to September.
