A must-see, especially for those remotely interested in transportation. They have a huge collection. They have an excellent section with the history of Saskatchewan as well, with many interactive exhibits that kids will love. Highly recommended!

We spent a great afternoon wandering around this museum - very interesting to see how transportation has evolved... especially liked the Snowbirds section!

I really enjoyed this attraction. We got there early on a Sunday morning and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The Snowbirds exhibit is great. It covers all forms of transportation from trains, planes and automobiles plus come horse drawn ones and some boats. It's all indoors and the temperature was just right.

We enjoyed the site. It is reasonably priced and relatively well set up. Parts of it didn't flow very well, but overall it was interesting. I wish they would have had a bit more in the boating section. Otherwise pretty good.

It is a wonderful place for who love transportation. It has train, cars, ship, and airplane from the old time. It's a good place to learn knowledge and good place to take nice pics. And you also can get into the train and train station to enjoy the time in the past. Good for all ages! The staff is extremely... More

This museum doesn't change things up too much, but if you're a fan of the history of transportation there's a huge amount to see. Everything is very well maintained. The only downside is that since the displays don't change often, repeat visits can feel dull.

Had a fantastic time, there was so much to see and learn. Lots of interesting stuff, we especially loved that you could go inside of the trains. We could have spent the entire day there!

Second time visiting this museum. Kids and adults love it. Reasonable family entrance fee of $25 which allowed us to return the next day as well. Planes, trains, boats, vehicles and more! Very well put together museum. Lots of history and collections here. Could easily spend a few hours here. Kid friendly too!
