Museums conjure up many images, mostly involving displays of objects. 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 1,000 volunteers who generously support Saskatchewan heritage every day, every year.
In 2018, 46,113.25 hours of volunteer service were donated to the WDM locations in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon, Yorkton as well as the Corporate Office.
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!
