It was our first time there and we love it. It's a great aproach to the history of the inmigration of saskatoon and the conditions they have back in thales days. There's so many things we learn there. Very recomendé.

The WDM is a unique and wonderful indoor experience of a boom town that you can visit all year around. The displays are constantly being updated and expanded.

The WDM is a place for everyone to enjoy, from the young to the elderly. The children enjoy all the hands on to experience the past, while the elderly can enjoy a trip down memory lane.

if you find yourself in Saskatoon, take the time to see how it once was on the prairies, if you live in Saskatoon and haven't been there, shame on you, if you've been go again, there is so much to look at, digest and contemplate it never gets tiring. Open up you imagination and Imagine you life during those times.

Very easy to get around. Interactive for kids. Boom town feels like walking back in time. Christmas is beautifully decorated with the festival of trees.

A look back in history, displays and artifacts are great to see. Have a actual CP train engine in the museum. Be sure to see other Western Development Museums in other Saskatchwan cities
