Medalta Potteries

The Historic Clay district part III
Set against the dramatic cliffs of the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat Alberta, the 150-acre Historic Clay District was once home to the earliest industry in Western Canada. Today the history of the once-dominant pottery & clay industry is being revived with the iconic Medalta Potteries National Historic Site providing the setting for a living, working museum.
Visitors to Medalta have the opportunity to walk the same path as the men & women who once worked in the factory. Today, the factory has been transformed into a museum showcasing the people and industry that made Medicine Hat. The Working Pottery makes replica Medalta pottery for sale in our gift shop – visitors can actually enter the studio and speak with workers.
