Hours of operation 2020

Unfortunately, due to the novel corona virus global pandemic, the EPHF museum will remain closed this summer and fall.  

The Leduc Country Lights are back for 2020! From December 1 to January 3, 2021, every day except Christmas you are invited to visit the Leduc West Antique Society and for just $2 take a stroll through a magic wintery wonderland. The park will be open every day between 5PM and 10PM (except Christmas eve when it will close at 8PM). Unfortunately, due to Covid19 Santa won't be there and we are not serving hot chocolate, but feel free to bring your own. There will be a fire pit to warm your toes so dress warmly and bring the entire family for a wondrous winter evening. Visit leduccountrylights.ca for more information. Unfortunately the EPHF museum will be closed during this event.

Check out this video of last year's display:

We are located on the grounds of the Leduc West Antique Museum. Travel 5 miles west of Leduc on Highway 39. Go north on Range Road 260 (Cohne Dale Road) for about a mile and the museum will be on your right.
