Who are we?

The Western Development Museum (WDM) is the largest human history museum in Saskatchewan with a collection of over 75,000 artifacts. The WDM tells the Saskatchewan story from the beginning of settlement to present day. Each location showcases a different story of Saskatchewan history - transportation in Moose Jaw, farm and rural life in North Battleford, 1910 Boomtown in Saskatoon and the stories of immigrants to the province in Yorkton.


Where are we? 

Our four museum locations can be visited in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon, and Yorkton. Our Curatorial Centre is located in Saskatoon, SK.
