Western Development Museum- Saskatoon
Saskatchewan boomed with economic activity from the turn of the century to 1914. Landseekers flooded the west and towns grew almost overnight. The museum’s main permanent exhibit is 1910 Boomtown, an indoor representation of a typical Saskatchewan town, recaptures the atmosphere and style of this bustling period. Over 30 buildings await!
1910 Boomtown captures the atmosphere and style of this bustling settlement period. The 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.
