Nice museum which mainly concerns itself with natural history. Lots of exhibits about animals, plants, and native tribes of the local area. The is also a large section on meteors and dinosaurs. This is a great place for kids and teens to learn a lot about their world. There were two school groups in the museum when we were there.

Excellent dioramas with great attention to detail. First Nations gallery is very informative. Very worthy of it's AAA/CAA Gem rating. Admission is free but, I'm sure they would willingly take donations.

I would have been happy with just seeing the mechanical dinosaur! However, the real show was the excellent presentation of exhibits that takes visitors through the plant, animal and water life of Saskatchewan. We were then welcomed into the lives of the First Peoples - such an all embracing exhibit.

Great couple hours to see the museum and look at the different animals. Nice to walk around outside afterwards and enjoy the park.

This museum has two floors. One floor covers the geological history of Saskatchewan and some history of the native peoples that lived there. The other floor is filled with information and dioramas about the flora and fauna of modern day Saskatchewan. The dioramas are "blended" into paintings and have good information panels to explain what is seen. These dioramas are... More

There's no admission fee. Just a donation box with a suggestion. Also, at the bottom of the stairs is a coat rack. So trusting and so wonderful. The exhibit space is of its time but explains the natural history and the first nations stories quite well. I was impressed.

Having lived in Regina for the last 8 years, it is a shame that it took us this long to visit the RSM. Our 2 year old twins loved Megamunch, the mechanical dinosaur, and all the animals on display. They were also enthralled by the pow-wow dancer display. This is a great place to take young children, and there is... More

We had a couple of hours to fill and decided to take a trip to the museum. It's a great regional museum explaining about the Saskatchewan ecozones and aboriginal peoples. Admission is by donation!! Being from out of province, we asked for some specific information for a school project and were given several booklets full of information to take home.... More

How lucky we are to have this facility to visit again and again. Our grandson loves to see the exhibits and notices something different everytime he goes. The animals displayed in their natural setting are wonderful. Everytime I go I learn something from the excellent exhibits and something new catches my eye each visit. I love this place. It is...

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum is free to enter, but a donation is appreciated. Here, you can visit various general exhibits on different portions of history, mostly related to Saskatchewan. You can learn about the "First Nations" of Canada and all the way back to the dinosaur periods of Saskatchewan. The main draw though is for Megamunch, the robotic Tyrannosaurus Rex... More
