Nice to go inside and escape the heat. Loved showing my children how their grandparents and great grandparents lived long ago!

It was fantastic to be able to bring my husband (new family) to an incredible piece of history I experienced as a child and now was able to see again through new eyes and with much pride.

It gets better every time. I so love visiting this exceptionally well done museum. It litterally is the standard by which I've measured all others and it stands up so well. A very pleasant trip down memory lane.

We ran into bad weather for our Saskatoon visit and needed a place to hang with our friends. It was a very comprehensive look at our pioneer past and made me appreciate our history.
