Medalta is a jewel in the Canadian Badlands – an industrial museum and contemporary arts centre, framed by the dramatic cliffs of the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Inhale the nostalgia as you walk the same floors as past factory workers. Learn and create while getting hands on with a clay experience taught by ceramic artists who are currently enrolled in our International Artists in Residence program. Immerse yourself in local culture with your knowledgeable tour provider (please book in advance), and complete your journey by indulging in local foods while connecting with Medicine Hat’s growing creative community through various free to the public events. Our facilities are open year-round. Please check our website for special event hours.
