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.

Was trying to kill time in Yorkton, having been to all the other WDM was expecting a certain amount of neat things and was far from disappointed. The gals in the front were extremely personable, and I loved it!

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.
