It was such a pleasure showing the youngest generation all the changes that have happened over the years. They couldn't believe the first phones and the first airplanes. The trains and snowbirds were amazing and each grandson flew and landed a plane. It is extremely clean and the staff super nice.

The kids had a lot of fun climbing in and out of the displays. Especially the trains. I would recommend it for a young family looking for something to do on a random weekend.

This is a museum of transportation and there is everything from motorcycles, cars, hearses, boats and more. Perhaps the most fascinating was the tribute to the Snowbirds. There is even a cockpit visitors can climb into and experience what the pilots do. When you enter and pay, you are given a map of the museum and its different sections which... More

My sister and I enjoyed the museum - there were a lot of different transportation displays from across the years. The gift shop was good, admission was good for two days and gave a discount to go to other western development museums across the province.

This was the best part about our trip to Moose Jaw. We spent 3 hours here and easily could have spent another. Definitely worth the $10.00 admission fee and would go back again!

Let the youth come out in yourself with the memories of vintage vehicles we all travelled in , to the realism of how advanced automobiles became.The mind will soar through the air with the feel of single engine cessena to the loud distinguising thunder of the world famous Snowbirds.Take...
