Very interesting example of small town Saskatchewan prairie life. I thought there was more information on the NWMP but I couldn't find it.

Travel guides will tell you that the T.Rex Discovery Centre is the place to visit when you're in Eastend. Well and good, although it pales before the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller (Alberta). My interest in local history led me instead to the Eastend Historical Museum, in the middle of town, not far from my initial destination, the Wallace Stegner... More

Myself and two teenagers tagged along on a group tour of the museum and we were had a great time. The displays are well cared for, including a heritage shack and full log cabin on site. Loved the 80 year old bacon on display. Well worth a visit if you are in the Eastend area!

East End might have Scotty...but this Museum has just as much history! The Log home sheds light on how it was back then!

I was surprised by the number of articles on display not only in the main museum but also in the buildings outside. The cabins were impressive with excellent detail on living in the early years in the province. The young man who was working that day was very polite and asked us more than once if we had any questions.... More

You never know what you will find in a small town museum. This one was a treat. There are interesting displays in an old theatre, and when you go out the side door there are several buildings including a wonderful log cabin. If you go, look up inside the rooms of the log cabin and see how new rooms were... More

This is a fine settler's museum of life in the early Canadian prairie provinces. We came because Eastend is the birthplace of my mother-on-law during the Saskatchewan wheat-boom years of 1916, as well as the boyhood home of famed American author and writing professor Wallace Stegner (see "Wolf Willow" for his take on the effect of his early experiences as...

This small local historical museum which is located in the bucolic town of Eastend, Saskatcehwan is something you must visit while in the area. Not only do they have a great collection of pioneer memorabilia but they have some locally found fossils which compliments the displays up at the T Rex Centre. In addition, they have a real log cabin... More

Awesome way to learn about prairie life! Really enjoyed the neat treasures! I went with a group of people from Saskatchewan and Ontario and everyone really enjoyed it. Eastend also has some nice lunch spots. The town is home to an amazing pottery studio. You may have to ask locals where it is and how to get there. The pottery... More
