Having been a long time resident in Saskatoon I've seen this museum evolve from the early days to a first class facility. We purchase two year memberships because of frequent visits to bring grand children and out of town visitors. It's educational for young and old. This is a must see venue.

This museum has a wide variety of artifacts...set up as a street from a typical prairie town, there are many "stores" and businesses to browse through. If you have children with you, be sure to get the quiz for them and have them look for the answers with the help of the clues. The restaurant here has large portions of... More

I liked the whole concept. And the street from yesteryear was exceptional. The different displays from different era's was not only entertaining but educational. We will most likely visit here again on our next trip to Saskatoon as one visit is not enough.

The doctors office is actually the one of our own country doctor. The food, service, and welcome are genuine. We take a family membership. Only in Saskatchewan would you find a museum built and staffed by this massive volunteer workforce.

There was much to see. The little restaurant adds a lot, but could be improved on. Maybe foods from pioneer days? Or really good pies and other desserts? Liked the store, too. It carries unique items.l

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
