This was a wonderful trip back in time. Great displays which interested the men and women both. Lots of cool places for photo ops including in the train engine. A relaxing museum with the fun of the hunt for a robber included.

We have been to the WDM many times and different seasons. My oldest is now 13 and she still enjoys going to the museum. It has something for everyone and is still exciting even the 10th and 11th time! The Christmas exhibit is my absolute favourite.

A very interesting and wonderful place to visit. It has a great turn of the 20th century town built in timely inside to tour and explore at your own speed. It has a large display of bygone farm machines and steam engines. Also there are a few old cars, for car buffs. The restaurant serves great food, especially the home... More

We took friends from Arizona who liked it so much they wanted to go back for another day. Very interesting indoor display of what life was like in the years around 1910 when Saskatoon was being settled. Highly recommended.

We were lucky enough to be there for Pioneer Days and had a great time! We would have enjoyed the museum even if this special event weren't going on. The museum and staff are wonderful and fun!

It is a great place to see how the lives used to be lived when the old country side was beginning. From the way we lived on the prairies and the start of the new farm equipment to the beginning of the automobile. The trains that brought most folks to our region and the stores and offices that we originally... More

Must be seen. The other 3 WDMs are also great places to visit. Unfortunately they aren't as friendly or interesting to the newest generation which must plug in for everything or it isn't true.

If I visit the Museum once or one hundred times I will never tire of taking a step into the past and enjoying the wide variety of items from the past! What an experience! Just taking a grand parent along or older family member will make the visit even more exciting as they reminisce of stories about items and places... More
