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.

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.
