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.

Airplanes, trains, trucks, snowplows, bikes, even... More

It has been years since we visited the Moose Jaw WDM, it was fun, other than the weather keeping the train from running. Our boys had lots of fun, the highlights for us were finding my grandpa's photo and card in the ham radio room as well as finding our boy's choir director's music in the kids room.

Not as popular as the tunnels but much more valuable from a historic perspective. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the history of the prairies.
