Lac La Biche Regional Museum
& Discovery Centre
The Lac La Biche Regional Museum and Discovery Centre, which includes Lac La Biche’s Visitor Information Centre, is located on the lower level of McArthur Place in the hamlet of Lac La Biche overlooking beautiful Lac la Biche and McArthur Park. Operated by the Lakeland Interpretive Society, we are dedicated to the development of a facility that will serve as a hub of interpretive, historical, and cultural programs in Lac La Biche County and the Lakeland Region. We “Tell the Story” of the region through a combination of permanent exhibits, changing displays, and programs on various themes. Members and visitors also have an opportunity to discover “Their Own Stories” by researching in our Archives.
