Much of the heritage of Western Canada traces its roots through the Assiniboia Museum. A stroll down the ‘boardwalk’ will bring you back in time to our prairie town of 1912.

Meet the pioneers, our forefathers, who braved the elements and had the courage to embark on a journey across the vast prairies to the unknown.

Within these walls, the Museum salutes the visionaries of our past.

The museum also houses vintage cars dating back to 1916, a large pictorial history and photo archive collection of the area, with a Pole Shed and quonset in the yard with agricultural machinery among the many more interesting things to see.

Collection Highlights: Farquhar Collection of Vintage cars / Prentice African Safari Exhibit / Heritage Place Boardwalk which highlights the old General Store, Milliners Shop & Drug Store.
