Why Go?
For a day of fun, learning about history, and experiencing a new culture, plan a visit to The Romanian Pioneer Museum of Boian, located on RR 143, 4 miles north of Hwy 45. The museum features four fascinating exhibits for you to explore, including The Bordei, which was a half dugout shelter used by pioneers. 

This open-air museum preserves artifacts, documents, and family histories of the first Romanian immigrants that came from Bukovina to Alberta between the years 1895 and 1915. For the past few years, the Canadian Romanian Society of Alberta has been renovating and adding new facilities to the existing buildings and now has six RV camping stalls with power hookups. 

Bring the family out today and see everything that this museum has to offer!

What's Unique?
