We took our grandson who enjoyed the train ride(that cost $3 but it goes to the original mine train). The museum has a huge assortment of transportation methods from Saskatchewans history and all are wonderfully restored to provide pleasure. We especially loved the old locomotives!

Make sure you have plenty of time to roam through, there is lots to see. If you pay for 1 day and are unable to finish, not to worry, they let you come back the following day for free!

Unlike other Western Development Museums, this one is strictly a transportation museum. It doesn't feature early farm equipment, nor exhibits of what life was like in the early Western Canada. We thought the vehicle section was extensive and informative. It featured everything from the very earliest vehicles right up to a mammoth 1979 Lincoln. The sections on railways and air... More

I had not been to the WDM in Saskatoon in about 5 years...what a treat. There have been so many great changes. 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.
