We planned to spend at least a half-day here of our 2-day stop in Saskatoon, only to drive out there and discover that nearly the whole building is under massive renovation and there is basically nothing of interest to see except 2 small galleries of modern artwork. Yes, the home page mentions being "at the tail end of construction" but in no way does it convey the lack of displays etc. We had been SUPER excited to have an opportunity to discover "pre-contact" items as advertised on the website (where we saw NO mention of the state of disrepair and lack of displays etc). Completely underwhelming and hugely disappointing, to say the least. Given that one of the major draws of this place is the bison, I'll stick to seeing them closer to home at Elk Island National Park!

Had a beautiful 2-3 hour walk on the land. So much history here wow. Learning about the buffalo jumps was so eye opening. Regret not coming earlier in the day to take advantage of all the programming. I will return !

With the First Nations taking over many parts of government it’s is important to learn their history as a part of Canadian tapestry. It is a historic spot for bison hunt and a traditional meeting place. There are also souvenirs for sale to take home alongside the aboriginal art exhibits. A must visit point on an educational Prairie tour.

Was no one there and for good reason. Pay so much to go for a walk on a trail? Government funded joke. Stay in Saskatoon it's much better on the river trails. If you want to get out of the City try Cranberry Flats or Batoche National Historic Site.

Response from R3168KKandrewm, Manager at Wanuskewin Heritage Park
Responded Nov 13, 2019
Hi TheGood_or_Bad thank you for your feedback. I wanted to address a few things that you had mentioned in your review. First off, yes we agree that Batoche and Cranberry flats are amazing spots for hiking opportunities and for cultural and historic destinations. The difference between Wanuskewin and each of these sites however is that we are not solely government funded. We are a registered charity who annually applies for funding from a number of different organizations that makes up a portion of our operations. As a non profit organization, every dollar we make from admissions, goes back into our organizations for things like trail maintenance, Cultural programming, facilities, etc During this time, we are undergoing a major renovation that includes a huge building expansion, greater permanent exhibits, expansive art galleries, gift shop, restaurant and a reintroduction of a Cultural bison herd. We hope to become the first UNESCO designated site in Saskatchewan’s history and endeavour to become a major tourism destination in the country. Ultimately however I am disappointed to hear that we have not met expectations. If possible could I ask you to please contact me to discuss further how we could be doing better marketing@wanuskewin.com

This place came highly recommended by the visitor information centre in town, but unfortunately did not live up to expectations. There is currently a lot of construction underway as others have mentioned. That aside, there still isn’t a great deal to do there. There is no public transport to get there. An Uber will take you there, but for the return trip Uber said I was outside the Saskatoon range, so I had to get a taxi (approximately $30 one-way trip). The art gallery/shop are quite small (I imagine it will be more extensive once renovations are complete). Most of the walking trails are still accessible, although they’re nothing to write home about. I found the walking trails along the river in town much nicer. Save your money and your time, and explore the walkways along the riverfront in town instead.
