Went on a cool and misty October afternoon. A refreshing walk through the trails. Benefited from following a school group with a guide who was providing cultural context and stories. Then wandered along another path and discovered 3 white-tailed deer in close proximity to the bridge we were crossing. If you love nature and history, you'll love this place. I... More

There is a sence of tranquillity when you walk the trails, but I have never liked the admission price. I understand there are galleries as well, but I just like the trails. Sometimes there are trails closed, but they do not tell you that when you pay. That is a bit of a rip off too.

Visited on unseasonably cold evening in October adding to the bleakness of the place so probably not at its best. Most of this spacious place is taken up by a shop selling all sorts of first nation items including baby mocassins for 50 dollars and a couple of rooms of art. Not sure what they do with the rest of... More

This past summer I took a couple visitors from Germany to Wanuskewin after not visiting for years. I was totally let down and wasn't sure what I paid for. Years ago I'd gone numerous times, taking visitors from all other the world. There was a great interactive display, information and demonstrations on carbon dating finds, etc. Now there is only...

Spent a few hours on the trails outside, exploring the area. Beautiful views, breathtaking scenery, and an afternoon of exercise and fresh air. I came back to the Centre to find a powwow dance demonstration in progress. The dancer was interesting, well-spoken, funny, and engaging. Overall, I'd highly recommend visiting for anyone who enjoys hiking and cultural activities.

We went to hike the fantastic trails, had a great time doing so, then we had a lovely lunch, spent quality time checking out the museum, and spent an hour watching dancing - well worth a visit.

Just OK for inside features, not much to see, didn't walk any of the trails. If looking for a cultural experience, it was ok

It's worth to know the history of Indians more. The trails where to walk are a good idea to enjoy the view. I really liked this museum.

Although there may not be much to see within the building the trails are wonderful and worth the walk. Great valley views and views of Saskatoon. Unfortunately my kids missed out on learning a little about the teepees as the staff was too busy talking on her phone. Very disappointed. Entrance staff provided not information other then provide us with... More

A quick look at the exhibits and a walk down the trails is all there is to do here. Wish they had active archaeological digs, that would make the trip worthwhile.
