Medalta in the Historic Clay District

Medalta is an innovative, industrial non-profit museum, contemporary ceramic arts facility, art gallery and community hub in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Located within a converted century-old factory, it has become an exciting place where cutting-edge technologies meet historic restoration and archaeology come together.

Our education and community programs are an important and vibrant part of Medicine Hat and surrounding area; these programs could not be offered without the generosity of our members.
