The separate buildings house an Aboriginal Gallery, Heritage Gallery, Oil and Gas Gallery, and Air Force Museum. Each building is connected by a covered walkway which is approximately 700 feet long. There are also outdoor displays of army vehicles and aircraft.

The Cold Lake Agricultural Society has numerous annual events, including a Bull-A-Rama Spring Series and a June Rodeo. On Canada Day, the City of Cold Lake celebrates with an annual parade and several activities, followed by a spectacular fireworks show later in the evening at the Cold Lake Marina.
