Museums conjure up many images, mostly involving displays of 'old things'. But the real lifeblood of a museum is not only in the things it collects. The lifeblood of a museum is the people who immerse their time and talents in the work of the museum.

At the Western Development Museum, along with a handful of dedicated staff, museum work is accomplished by thousands of extra hands. The hands belong to over 1400 volunteers who generously support Saskatchewan heritage every day, every year.

The WDM celebrates our 1400 + volunteers all year and during National Volunteer Week
April 15-21, 2018

The theme for 2018 is 'Celebrate the value of volunteering. Building confidence, competence, conncetiond and community.'

The WDM has released its statistics for the volunteer hours that have been donated by its very dedicated volunteer core in 2017.

52, 302 hours of volunteer service were donated to the WDM locations in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon, Yorkton as well as the Curatorial Centre. Volunteers donating their time range in age from 8 to 98.

Thank-you to all of our volunteers for all of the time and talent they dedicate in helping make us a living and vibrant Museum!
