WDM Collection Now Available To View Online

The Western Development Museum collection of Saskatchewan artifacts and over 9,000 of its library materials are now available for the public to search online.

From pins to locomotives to a grain elevator, the WDM’s collections touch on all aspects of life in Saskatchewan. Early collecting at the WDM focused on agricultural settlement. Today, the WDM boasts one of the largest farm machinery collections in Canada. Current collecting has evolved to reflect all Saskatchewan’s people, including Indigenous communities, a greater diversity of migrant groups, and LGBTQ2+ histories.

“We are very excited to share our collections online with the people of Saskatchewan and the world,” said Julie Jackson, WDM Collections Manager. “Visitors will now be able to access the WDM collections, located in five separate geographic locations in the province, at any time and place as long as they have an internet connection.”

Adding all information from the Museum’s collection online is a work in progress. Additional content, features and functionality will continue to be added for better usability. Future virtual exhibitions will also be available through the new database. CLICK HERE to search the database.

    • Hi Edward,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The WDM has two Reeves 40-65’s in our Collection. One is located in North Battleford and the other in Saskatoon. We hope you can visit soon and see them!

  • Does the museum have a Rocol 98 tractor in the collection? The tractor was also sold under the name Regal or Custom. I would also like to see any literature on the tractor. If you have a tractor or literature do I need an appointment to view them?

    • Hello David,

      Thank you for your inquiry regarding a Rockol 98 tractor.

      Unfortunately the WDM does not have a Rockol in its collection, nor do we have any literature on the tractor or company. I did a bit of research and the Pioneer Acres Museum in Irricana Alberta ( is believed to have one.
