Wetaskiwin c-eniconwəˈtæsk(ə)wɨn is a small city in the province of Alberta, Canada. The city is located 70 km (43.5 mi) south of the provincial capital of Edmonton. The city name comes from the Cree word wītaskīwin-ispatinaw (ᐑᑕᐢᑮᐏᐣ ᐃᐢᐸᑎᓇᐤ), meaning "the hills where peace was made".

Wetaskiwin is home to the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, a very large museum dedicated to celebrating "the spirit of the machine", as well as the Wetaskiwin and District Heritage Museum which documents pioneer arrival and lifestyle in Wetaskiwin's early years. Located southeast of Wetaskiwin, the Alberta Central Railway Museum acknowledges the impact that the railway had on central Alberta. Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame is also located a short walk away from the museum.
