Great museum. Done with lots of love for the details. You learn a lot about Canadian history! The restaurant at the museum offers tasty food.

At a wedding at the museum and stopped for a quick lunch at the café - ordered chicken fingers and onion rings - absolutely great and such a large serving. Doggie bag needed as none of the four of us could finish our food.

Should have couple of hours to tour the building as there are lots of old cars and machines as well as a old town Main Street. I think it is great for all ages to see.

This is a correct and well preserved tribute to the heritage of Saskatchewan and is worth a major detour for a day out. Set in an uninspiring barn/warehouse type structure you are unprepared for the scale of the museum. The main attraction is reconstruction of...More
