Go waaaaaay back in time

Great place to lose yourself for several hours. Take advantage of yesteryear. Items go back a few hundred years.

There are a number of Western Development Museums in Saskatchewan. This one is on different types of travel over the years in Saskatchewan. There is every type of travel imagine able. There is a lot on air travel even a couple of jets from the Snow Birds. Very very cool.

This is a great museum, it's informative and interesting. I've loved going here since I was a kid. It has this ghost town feel now though. It's a shame it's not busier

Display of Airplanes, cars, trains, including a massive steam engine is well worth the visit. Entry fee is cheap. Kids all ages love it. Some hands on experience on some display. Need 2 hrs minimum

Not bad if you like looking at vintage cars and planes, not to much information as you would find in other museums and hard to find the information. The railway section is good but lacks information. Was nice to see the old artefacts but nothing to special due to lack of information.

Getting older it is almost disturbing I can remember seeing some of this stuff on our family farm. Good afternoon at a reasonable cost, lots of free parking.

Our entire family, with kids ages 7 and 12, thoroughly enjoyed learning about modes of Canadian transportation from the past and present. Nice that there were "hands on" exhibits for the kids too. Would recommend for budget conscious families. If I remember correctly, it was under $30 for the 4 of us and tickets can be used to visit affiliated... More

This is a museum you have to see. It has a lot of nice cars and planes, even trains. They tell the history of transport from the horse wagon up to day.
