The staff at the Ukrainian Museum are wonderful and very knowledgable. I spent time at the museum twice during my stay in Saskatoon and experienced three different staff members, all of whom were very knowledgable and helpful. The museum is a self-guided tour (no photographs allowed), very well-documented and interesting. One area of the museum is set to host various... More

We were there on a weekday with few people around. The result was a private seminar from the guide/hostess on Ukraianian history and the migration to Saskstchewan. The museum is small enough that you can see the whole thing in 1-2 hours even reading much of the history and descriptions. Worth the experience. After leaving we now understand much better... More

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

I visited the permanent display explaining Ukrainian immigration and, also, excellent temporary displays of William Kurilek, artist, and also Ukrainian currency of the revolutionary period. I was almost the only visitor so I had time to discuss history and current issues with the knowledgable staff. Well worth a visit whether one is of Ukrainian background or not.

My father emigrated from Poland after the Second World War and had to adapt to the New World. However, this museum shows the greater hardships these people overcame to establish themselves as a proud cultural community of Western Canada. The museum, although only has a couple of rooms of exhibits does an excellent job documenting what these immigrants when through... 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.
