So we walked in and discovered a town under the roof! It blew us away. The map is excellent as it takes you through the museum while explaining the displays well. There were lots of interactive displays and some really good audio/visual pieces that explained the life of the early settlers. Do not miss the 'magic' trick when the kitchen... More

A well-done History of the Settlement of Saskatchewan that is being frequently added to. In addition there are special exhibits from time to time throughout the year.

A great family visit with many displays for all ages. Boomtown restaurant features great food especially the Buffalo Burger. If you like Burgers --this is one you are bound to enjoy

A great place to learn and have fun, also the best place ever for a toddler - great walking space with so much to look at (even if you spend most of the time in the model railway section!). We spent 4 hours here enjoying every nook and cranny and had a lovely homecooked meal in the restaurant, some of... More

When visiting Saskatoon, be sure to include a trip to the Western Development Museum. It's always a pleasant summer day because the whole museum is basically Main Street of a small town, complete with shops, fine food, and businesses as they would have been in the 1910s in Saskatchewan all under one huge roof. The exhibitions will take you back... More

If you are in Saskatoon, and have most of a day to spare, don't miss this. Especially interesting for anyone with an interest in Canadian pioneering history and artefacts.

I enjoyed it. One of our many haunts, especially when our children were just young enough and old enough to enjoy it. It is a peek into the Saskatchewan /prairie settler era. In the fall, we sat on the bleachers for the wheat threshing demonstration: the yummy end result was fresh baked bread and homemade jam. Christmas was special, with... More

This museum is unique. The entire contents of this really huge building is a prairie town circa 1910. Complete with all manner of shop, service, transportation, machinery, clothing, food etc. On certain days there may be a blacksmith working in the blacksmith shop or a choir singing in the church. I would say that all museums are educational but this... More

It is a very interesting place to visit and lots for the whole family. The museum is well layed out and very informative. There is a nice gift shop and an excellent restuarant. Plan on at least 2-3 hours to really see it all and enjoy the history that abounds within the walls
