Strolling through a 1910 village, you can go in all the shops of the day ... from the blacksmith to the newspaper office to the general store and everything in between. See what life was like over 100 years ago.

We are members so go often. There is a section called The Depression Years that we missed for months...and it is awesome! Also has a new Funeral a Home exhibit. Our grandchildren love it all. The restaurant has fabulous homemade style food.

Great place to take the grandkids. Boomtown always gets their attention. The steam locomotive needs to be "driven". Model trains, antique cars and driving a combine. What could be better?

Saskatoon Western Development Museum is a really neat place to visit. The Boom town is so real you think you have just stepped back in time. All the little businesses look just like they did when I was a kid. There is a jail, in the North west Mounted Police station, a pharmacy with all the old bottles behind the... More

The WDM's Boomtown in Saskatoon is a must-see for all visitors. Boomtown is a unique indoor replica of a prairie town circa 1910. The latest addition was a Funeral Home with artifacts from the first one built in Saskatoon. This is the only such display in Canada. You will also see a school, church, blacksmith shop, drugstore, etc. In addition... More

I've been to the Western Development Museum several times and I always find it interesting. In particular, there's a whole street set up like it would've been 'back in the day' and I could spend hours looking round that just on its own. But there's far more. Trains, vehicles and tractors for the mechanically minded and lots of informational static... More

This is the one place that everyone has to visit at Christmas; whether your a Toontown resident or a visitor the travel back in time among the Fabulous display of trees is simply a treat. Just be sure to stop in the gift shop for a sweet treat on your way out!

A travel back in times...... Back to remembering riding with my brother in the buggy to school! Yes there was a buggy there that flooded my heart with memories of the past! So many articles I remembered! I would recommend everyone take the time to enjoy the past! A lovely calm place to reminisce!
