The Blacksmith Shop Museum is the oldest operational Blacksmith Shop in Alberta today. It is a museum dedicated to blacksmithing in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada. It is still located on the original site. Much of the original machinery in the blacksmith shop is in operating condition.

In 1991, Lacombe and District Historical Society purchased by the blacksmith shop and restored as a museum. The Lacombe Blacksmtih Shop was designated as a Provincial Historic Resource by the Government of Alberta in 2011.
