We came here after being at the WDM in Moose Jaw. Enjoyed the setup and artifacts on display. It was very quiet on the day we visited. We took a picnic lunch and ate on site.

Lots of historical information about the growth and development of Saskatchewan. Shares the stories of many immigrant groups that came to the province and has a large outdoor collection of historical farm machinery. Our grandson loved it!

Very nice museum. I went on a day when it was not busy. Lots of detailed information about the exhibits. They also have a great little gift shop with lots of Saskatchewan based products. Definitely worth checking out.
