Going to each building along a street circa 1910 or so takes you back in time as it was. People and rooms are all in character. Tools, toys, furnishings, various stores etc all have been set up to experience the past.

I haven't been there in years. So glad I made a return visit. Even saw some things from my home town. How cool is that. My daughter said they visit every Xmas because of the Festival of Trees. One of these places that you would always discover something new each time.

If you try to go with a group on a Sunday be prepared to wait. The staff are very friendly and personable and try their best. Food was decent and value was fair.

Liked the extensive display of the prairie history and how the area was developed. Also, had some current items like a wind powered car and some solar powered vehicles.

My family tour museums all around the world and this was my highlight of our last trip. It was a delightful surprise to find such a well done "living museum" experience. Having the museum indoors makes it a great destination even in the middle of winter. We visited on a Friday in September and were pretty much alone which was... More

This is one of the best display museums I have seen so far. We spent the whole day here, had lunch In the café on site, then continued on. Lunch was great very reasonable and filling.

very informative, saw many things that I have used not realizing it was an antique. Very unique place to go. Highly recommended you will need at least 2 hours but plan on 4 or 5.

What a great place to escape the winter cold for the day. This is a big museum with lots to see and do. It gives a great overview of the history and development of Saskatchewan and Saskatoon in particular. Adults and children are catered for.
