Not a "must see"... unless you're super into these sorts of places. Just more of a museum. Interesting memorabilia. Free tour.

Took kids ages 8-13 here for a tour. Kind of interesting. Did not take long to go through. Entrance was free or by donation.

A bit of Saskatchewan history comes to life. We were at a meeting but took the opportunity to take a quick look around. It was time well spent. Activities and hours are listed on their website I'm sure.
