Always open, with some great exhibits

This is a very nice place to spend some time on a cold or rainy day. The exhibit area is small but well-laid-out and very informative. Our kids enjoyed it and learned a lot.

While this spot in the University is cool, and has a few fish tanks to look at, it is not a museum. It would be good for bringing kids to for an hour in the winter, but there's not much to look at.

Enjoyed the museum, nice exhibit, loved the insect collection on display and I know it was made by a talented young biologist from the University of Saskatchewan named Katherine (Kasia) Majewski.

I never thought of this area as a museum, but I suppose it qualifies. It's free, so great for budget travellers. It's in the middle of the Geology building, with classrooms and offices around. Easy to cover all of it in under an hour. Children seem to love the dinosaurs. Also has some small live animals and aquariums.

This may not be your average museum you are use to going to but it has displays in the corridors and lobby areas. This place does open early and has history for your enjoyment.this attraction is free .

A nice free small museum on the campus of the University of Saskatchewan. Make sure you see the fossils and minerals around the Geology Building as well.

A nice collection and one of the first places I take people to visit. A great variety of specimens and well worth going alone or with others.

This is not really a museum. It is displays in the lobby and corridors of the Geology Department building. The displays are interesting and it opens early.

First of all it's FREE! Which we all love. Second, it's interesting and educational, and who couldn't do with a bit more broadening of their horizons? I love that it's based at the UofS, which is centrally located and easily accessible for anyone in the city. Hop on the bus or drive down and park in one of the many... More
