This was a great day spent at this museum. Learned so much and I would recommend to anyone who hasn't been, to plan to stay for the whole day. I assumed going in, that we would be there for 1-2 hours and ended up spending well over 4 hours and could have stayed longer.

We are members of the Western Development Museum and live in Saskatoon. We visit the museum here frequently. The Boomto wn street always teaches us more about early Saskatchewan and the extra events such as Pionera, the annual Model train show and visiting exhibits are always worth seeing. With our membership we can, and do visit branches in Moose Jaw,... More

A great place for a day visit, lots to see and do for young and old. Stop at the restaurant for some excellent Saskatoon berry pie and ice cream

I really enjoy the Victorian area. This attraction is very detailed and the equipment in the back room was something I had never seen. So many different period machines as well as a full sized train. All indoors!

A great place to visit. Plus the dining room is a must! The food is home-made and delicious. We will be returning again next year when we are on holidays!

Good value (very reasonably priced), perfectly prepared, big variety. The entry is a bit weird... you order in a kind of cafeteria line that sure wouldn't lead you to think how good the food really is. The dining room's comfortable - kind of like your great grandmother's kitchen and the coffee is very good.

The museum is very well done. They have a great variety of displays and artifacts. There is plenty to see and you should also take time to grab a bite to eat in the restaurant inside. Very reasonable price and a great way to kill a few hours. Go for it.

1910 Boomtown is worth going to,the whole muesum is in one building with a large variety of different settings of settling the prairies,and there are a number of older vehicles and tractors to check out,and a restraunt in the same part as the museum,and also a gift shop to buy souvenirs

A fantastic step back in time. The fully restored automobiles,tractors,and trains were the crowning touch to this attraction. The only drawback was the obvious lack of air-conditioing.

It is easy to travel in time when you visit this museum. Real people, dressing clothes from the old times, perform tasks inside the many buildings, recreating the authentic atmosphere. Sure fun for averyone in the family!
