Administrative history

In 1985, Captain Chris Atkin, a regimental officer, established the Loyal Edmonton Regiment Museum Foundation. His goal was to secure a permanent place to house the collection of historical artifacts that had been gathered by the Loyal Edmonton Regiment. Captain Atkin found a space in the Prince of Wales Armouries Heritage Centre in Edmonton, where the Regiment had been previously based from 1920 to 1965.

In November 1997, the Loyal Edmonton Regiment Military Museum was opened to the public with its first gallery, the Major General William Antrobus Greisbach Gallery. The Museum is open to individual tours and group visits, including school and youth groups. The Museum also houses The Fortyniner, which is an annual journal of the Loyal Edmonton Regiment published since 1998. This journal is one of the oldest ongoing military publications in Canada.
