The Saskatoon West Development Museum is one of only a few handful of attractions in this relatively small city and does offer both a mix of the traditional and modern in it's approach.
At the time of our visit the museum was absolutely empty and the recreation of the 1910 Boomtown took on a whole new spooky experience, which in mind should be really played upon. :D
The nearly expanded sites include paraphernalia and machinery over the ages, some of which are staggering in their scale! These are tractors, but not as UK people might recognize them. More like trains for the fields!
Interactive displays are kept to a bare minimum so not to be too intrusive and the "story" of progress is well mapped out.
My only complaint being that my first mobile phone was displayed as a relic... how old did that make ME feel.
Staff are friendly, the cafe is fun and old worldly in nature and the quality of the displays is very high. Worth the admission and at least a visit while in Saskatoon; especially on a very hot day.
