Volunteer at WDM Moose Jaw
Museum volunteers bring our museum alive! From guiding visitors through our exhibit galleries to driving the K+S Potash Canada Short Line 101 to doing heritage demonstrations, we’ve got a volunteer opportunity for you at WDM Moose Jaw.
“I’d be there every day if I lived closer.” – WDM Volunteer Len McDonald, 2023

Love trains? Become involved with the K+S Potash Canada Short Line 101, the only working steam locomotive in Saskatchewan. Our volunteers work under the direction of the Chief Engineer of the WDM Steam Program.
Our Engineers run and look after our 1914 Vulcan steam locomotive. They are required to have a Limited Power Engineer License from TSASK and to have completed the WDM Training.
Share your love of trains and history with passengers. Like any train, conductors punch tickets and assist passengers on and off the train. Our conductors also help passengers imagine what a trip on a steam locomotive was like for those who first settled on the prairies.
Special Event Volunteers
Volunteers make Museum events possible. Play games, make crafts, supervise parking or any of the many other essential activities. Volunteers work directly with visitors.

Tour Guides and Interpreters
Share your enthusiasm and knowledge with visitors to the Museum of all ages. We provide the information, you bring the enthusiasm! Tours usually run under two hours and are pre-booked, so we will contact as necessary.
Interpreters share information on a specific topic or artifact at a special event. It can be as simple as teaching a declining skill – we will teach you first; or, even playing a historical character – again we will provide the information.
