Exhibits - 1910 Boomtown
Saskatchewan boomed with economic activity from the turn of the century to 1914. Landseekers flooded the west and towns grew almost overnight. 1910 Boomtown, an indoor representation of a typical Saskatchewan town, recaptures the atmosphere and style of this bustling period. Over 30 buildings await!
New - Edwards Funeral Home
The addition of the Edwards Funeral Home, with its roots dating back over 100 years, is in keeping with the Boomtown theme. Like museums everywhere, the WDM strives to present historically accurate exhibits – even when the subject matter may be complex or difficult. Dealing with death and grief is a universal experience, and death was an ever-present reality in 1910 Boomtown, as it is today.
