I am a huge fan of WDM and this location doesn't disappoint. From the remarkable plane display to the trains, it just has a way of bringing you back to the way things came to be.
And the staff is absolutely amazing, friendly and helpful with any questions you have.
I love this place, especially in the winter months. What better way to see the history of Saskatchewan but in a vast, warm building, filled with unique displays. And it’s great for all ages too. Plenty of parking, easy to find and you can easily spend hours looking at everything. I highly recommend a visit.
Great experience. Lot's of learning for kids. Summer trip when steam engine is running is recommended.
It's open and it's safe! Lots of room so social distancing is not a problem. It's a great place to go to get out of the house and it's heated all the way through so it's great In the winter for a scenic stroll. The exhibits are awesome and just seeing the old planes and cars is like jumping into a time machine to see into our analog past.
The best museum I have been to, WDM or otherwise. This beats the gangster museum in Las Vegas and the Clark County Museum as seen on Pawn Stars on TV.
The vast array of artifacts is amazing (my favourite: the vintage bike room). They are also well-maintained.
But what sets this museum apart is the curation. There are entire mini-villages set up. You can see right into a passenger train, complete with spittoon and hat box. You can tour a training base -- one of 20 in Saskatchewan which trained 33,000 aviation professionals for the British Commonwealth. You can see all stages of railway construction, right from bare prairie to grading gravel to entire towns popping up. They even built the bow of a ship, complete with anchor. Even in the middle of COVID, this was an amazing visit.
Lastly, the service we received was amazing. Denise and Jan were so welcoming. James the janitor was so polite and gave us little hints about the exhibits, such as pressing the button to make the trains go.
FIVE GOLD STARS! I'M A MEMBER FOR LIFE!
