This was my first time in Saskatoon and first time at that museum. The museum boasts an extensive collection of artefacts from the 1910 era displayed in building reproductions from that peril. The best part was the exhibit based on a 4-generation experience of one particular settler family. I learned a great deal and highly recommend the visit. The whole... More

This is a museum of artifacts. It is done up like 1910 and has many little and large artifacts from that period. There are movies and interactive displays.

Very interesting displays with some nostalgic moments. My husband and I enjoyed the indoor street scene with turn of the century buildings with historic contents. The... More

You really feel like you have stepped back in time!!! Displays are well done, authentic artifacts, period costuming on mannequins - so realistic! My two teenage nieces thoroughly enjoyed it! A great activity for a rainy day as the exhibits are indoors. A must see for everyone!

It has been a few years since I was here last. Boomtown as always was great to walk up and down and into each store/business and see how things use to be in 1910. This was the first time I was through what must be one of the newer exhibits "Winning the Prairie Gamble". Very interesting and enjoyable. Take a... More

This is a place that you can visit as a kid or an adult and get something out of it. Always fun to go through Boomtown but definitely enjoyed the history in the other sections on what is was like for first nations people and the settlers.
