Exhibits - Outdoor Areas
Our outdoor areas include Boomtown Park and a handful of Boomtown era buildings. Come out during certain Special Events to see these buildings in action.
Nestled in beside the Museum, this well-shaded area is a great place for a picnic lunch on a warm Saskatchewan afternoon. Picnic tables and garbage bins are provided.
Open during certain seasonal events, this functioning Blacksmith Shop is a companion to the indoor shop along Boomtown Street. See the red hot fire in the forges, feel their heat, and smell the burning coal as our volunteer blacksmiths hammer away at their latest projects.
In 2005 the Saskatoon WDM undertook the task of building a clay oven. It was made in the same style as was used by early settlers. The oven is used during the Museum’s annual event, Pion-Era, to demonstrate how bread was baked in the days before electricity and other modern conveniences. Approximately 180 loaves of bread were sold at Pion-Era 2009. All money raised goes towards the up-keep of the oven and WDM programs.
Model Grain Elevator
Grain elevators are storage facilities for wheat and other grains.
This grain elevator model is being constructed by volunteers on the Saskatoon WDM grounds.
