Western Development Museum
Saskatoon SK S7J 0S6
Celebrating 65 years in 2014, the Western Development Museum's 1910 Boomtown is a representation of a typical Saskatchewan town, captures the atmosphere and style of this bustling period. Over 30 buildings portray community life - from the general store overflowing with everything from nails to gingham, to the blacksmith shop ringing with the sound of the hammer striking the anvil. Transport yourself back to a time when the clip clop of horses filled the air. Your visit also includes the Winning the Prairie Gamble exhibit, Transportation Gallery and more! You don't just visit this museum, you live it!
Open Daily 9:00am-5:00pm. Closed Mondays January, February, March
