Summer Gallery Pop-ups

Join us at the WDM Moose Jaw Sundays in July and August for drop-in family activities! Explore Museum artifacts and exhibits with crafts, games and hands-on activities with a different theme on each date. This summer we invite you to learn more about bicycles, motorcycles, flight, astronomy, boating, trains, camping and comparing the past to the present.


July 3 – Let’s Take Flight Families will get to know more about the Snowbirds, including the aircraft featured at the WDM Moose Jaw while participating in activities and crafts inspired by the famous Saskatchewan air acrobatic team.
July 10 – Starry Night Visitors will explore the history of the WDM’s observatory, including some interesting facts on astronomy (like the planets and stars we can see) and about the Aurora Borealis, as well as make a take home craft based on the space theme.
July 17 – Sink or Swim Participants will be immersed in summer fun as we explore watercraft artifacts like canoes, boats, and more. Families can make their own water-themed crafts as we discuss our favourite memories on the water, including the history of these artifacts.
July 24 – All Aboard! Visitors will learn the history behind the luxurious superintendent’s coach and the train artifacts in the Rail Gallery and take part in fun train-themed crafts and activities relating to the gallery’s theme.
August 7 – Our History Travel back through time using the Timeline wall in the 100 years of Saskatchewan History exhibit and compare the past to what your family and friends do and take part in today. This activity is best enjoyed when different generations visit together. Learn about how you can connect your own history to the images and artifacts in this gallery.
August 14 – Let’s Go for a Ride Many visits to the Museum focus on planes, trains and cars but we’re shining the spotlight on some smaller artifacts at the WDM – bicycles and motorbikes. Learn about bicycles as well as some early motorcycles from Saskatchewan’s past, try out a Penny Farthing and make a two-wheeled craft to take home!
August 21 – Camp Out In this pop-up, we will learn about the history of recreational camping in our province. We will explore what being outdoors in the summer was like throughout the last 100 years and compare that to how we spend time with nature today.
