Medalta in the Historic Clay DistrictMedicine Hat View Map
Set against the dramatic cliffs of the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat, Alberta, the 150 acre Historic Clay District was once home to some of Canada’s most important clay factories, including Medalta Potteries, Hycroft China, National Porcelain and Alberta Clay Products. Today, this history is being preserved with the unique Medalta Potteries site providing the setting for a living, working museum.
The Medalta Potteries National Historic Site – which once produced over 75% of the pottery in Canada – is now an interactive museum dedicated to the preservation of our industrial past. Guests have the opportunity to enter one of our rare circular kilns, explore the original factory and learn about the many clay products that were once produced in the area.
