Where in the Peace Country can you see Brian Mulroney riding a mechanical bull? The Brownvale North Peace Agricultural Museum!This 15 foot high fiberglass bull and rider were built by the Alberta Government for the Alberta Pavilion showcased in Vancouver for Expo 86! The original cost was $30,000 but the Brownvale Museum was lucky enough to have it donated to them by George McKenzie who purchased it at auction for $4000.What better rider to portray than our Prime Minister in 1986 – Brian Mulroney!
Continue on past the bull to explore the historical buildings on display – the Grey Eagle school and the Brownvale Post Office are available for visitors to explore. Slip back through the decades when you step inside the buildings which feature many artifacts from the past.
