International Museum Day - May 18
1977, ICOM, the International Council of Museums has organized
International Museum Day to call attention to the importance of museums
to the fabric of societies around the world.
Apparently the WDM once had an even longer name! In a May 12, 1949 article “Giants Bossed The Frontiers” by W.J. Bradley in The Western Producer, pictures are identified as having been taken at the Western Canadian Development Museum in North Battleford.

Now on display: Scotty's Skull from the RSM
65,000,000 years ago, dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex
prowled our province.
In 1991, a T. rex fossil skeleton was found near Eastend, Saskatchewan. It was dubbed Scotty. This exhibit, on loan from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum from April - September 2013, features a cast of Scotty's massive skull.
