This venue presents displays of past prairie and cultural life with authentic artifacts and key information to ensure an understanding of days gone by. Their Christmas Past scavenge hunt is great fun!

We came here after being at the WDM in Moose Jaw. Enjoyed the setup and artifacts on display. It was very quiet on the day we visited. We took a picnic lunch and ate on site.

Was trying to kill time in Yorkton, having been to all the other WDM was expecting a certain amount of neat things and was far from disappointed. The gals in the front were extremely personable, and I loved it!

Went with 4 families with a total of 11 children. Lots to look at and read. Many, many old tractors in the back.

Lots of historical information about the growth and development of Saskatchewan. Shares the stories of many immigrant groups that came to the province and has a large outdoor collection of historical farm machinery. Our grandson loved it!

Very nice museum. I went on a day when it was not busy. Lots of detailed information about the exhibits. They also have a great little gift shop with lots of Saskatchewan based products. Definitely worth checking out.

I think this museum is getting better and better. I do like how it hasn't remained the same, it changes and evolves over time. I took my kids and they just loved it. There is a nice balance between written info and visuals and audio....More
