Winning the Prairie Gamble


Celebrate 100 years of Saskatchewan! Check out a few highlights of this exhibit below.

100 Year Timeline

Timeline, including 2005

See artifacts, photos, and video representing the events and trends which shaped and affected Saskatchewan since 1905. 

Did you know...Nine Tutor jets flying in formation awed the crowd at their debut performance for Saskatchewan Homecoming ‘71. The "Snowbirds" air demonstration squadron from Canadian Forces Base Moose Jaw has since become a Canadian icon, and continues to wow air show fans around North America.

Formation of a Province

Four manequins set the stage for provincehoodThis introduction area dramatically sets the stage for 1905 by giving an overview of the long and eventful story before provincehood.

A First Nations female mannequin from about 1850, a young Métis man from about 1870 tell the story with two other mannequins, an immigrant woman from 1890 and a politician in 1905. A mural in the introduction areas shows a pristine parkland view before European contact. Artifacts, photographs, dialogue and a specially-written song connect the years before contact to the year of provincehood.

Beyond the Grid

Road to Medicare 

CF-SAMSaskatchewan has a long tradition of caring for the sick and the elderly. From the farm women who campaigned for improvement in rural housing and health, to the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis Commission which pioneered the testing of school children for the disease, to the first government-operated air ambulance service in North America in 1946, to the provision of free treatment for cancer patients, to the implementation of Medicare in 1962, Saskatchewan has been a leader on the world stage in providing quality treatment at no charge to all residents.

Theatre

The Saskatchewan Theatre is an elegant, intimate and welcoming space that invites visitors to view the province with new eyes.

Authentic early 20th century theatre seating for 15, complete with ornate cast iron supports, are complemented by heavy velvet draperies and a decorative closed beam ceiling.

Six vignettes set into the theatre walls feature dress-up clothing like cowboy and cowgirl outfits for children, or a night on the town for their parents.
