WDM celebrates 75 Years

The WDM turns 75 on April 2! As we celebrate 75 years of sharing Saskatchewan stories and memories, we invite you to join in our anniversary celebrations on Tuesday, April 2 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm with special .75¢ admission all day. Each WDM location will have 75th anniversary-themed seek and finds, WDM history video and more. Cupcakes will be served at 2:00 pm (while supplies last).

The Western Development Museum (WDM) was established on April 2, 1949, when the Government of Saskatchewan passed the Western Development Museum Act. The WDM’s mandate is to collect, preserve, and exhibit objects of historical value and importance connected with the economic and cultural development of western Canada and to stimulate interest in western Canadian history.  Our vision is a Saskatchewan where everyone belongs and histories matter. The WDM is a registered charity (Charitable #: 119293215 RR0001).

“For 75 years, the WDM has been connecting people with Saskatchewan’s rich heritage. Come explore all the WDM has to offer as we look to the past and plan for the future.”

Orlanda Drebit
Chair, WDM Board of Directors

The WDM is a legislated agency of the Province of Saskatchewan and operates within the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport. The Museum is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors appointed by the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan through an Order in Council.
