Here is an excellent view of Ukrainian immigration to Canada with a great oral-history movie explaining Ukrainian life. Heavy on magnificent embroidery and folk costumes, the museum displays all manner of cultural dress. It also has examples of Ukrainian banknotes from the early 1900s. Easy to miss. The museum is very close to the Park Town Hotel but hidden behind... More

We enjoyed our visit to this small museum. It does a good job of telling the story of the first wave of Ukrainian immigrants to Canada. We learned about their trials and triumphs and came away with a greater appreciation of the great contribution this ethnic group has made to Canada

It was lovely to see all the intricate beadwork, stitchery and painted eggs we associate with the Ukraine as well as the work of contemporary artists. The historical artifacts are a reminder of what an important role these immigrants have had on the development of Saskatchewan.

If your past is linked to the Ukraianian immigration this will be an eye opener to show you the differences in the groups who came over to Canada. The richness in their history, clothing and thoughts are well displayed here.
