I especially liked the Saskatchewan history and pictures in the depression era and on section. Loved the model train section and the old Saskatoon Streetcar. Lots to see and DO, not enough time to do it this time...I... More

It was almost the same as the one in saskatoon but a little smaller i guess? Its mostly about the history of transporation, it was a cool place to visit and see some old interesting stuff and kinda learn from it too. Its just that the smell of the place is kinda old too, but overall it was fun to... More

Absolutely loved it, there is something for everyone here! Your admission receipt is good for two days and unless you get there early you're going to need that second day. Each section is a new experience and lots of interactive things as well.

Well put together. Takes about 90 minutes to tour. Lots and lots of of one-of-a-kind modes of transportation and A+ quality exhibits. Excellent lesson in Canada's, and especially Saskatchewan's, history.

All interesting but kids do enjoy the trains and planes, while the adults related as much or more to the vintage exhibits. G

This museum is great for a cold and dreary winter day. Children and adults alike will enjoy the historical transportation modes used in Saskatchewan. This branch of the Western Development Museum is dedicated to cars, trains, and other modes of transportation.

It's COLD outside in January! I took my family (2 yr & 6 yr olds) to the Western Development Museum in Moose Jaw for a little 'staycation'. We visited from Regina, arrived about 11am and it was almost vacant. my children checked out all of the areas and moved along when they had enough. Airplanes, trains, trucks, snowplows, bikes, even... More
