Western Development Museum

If you want to learn more about Saskatchewan’s history, we recommend visiting the Western Development Museum! This museum allows you to journey through prairie history from 1910 to the present day!

To complete your experience, you can even have your picture taken while dressed in a period costume at the Boomtown Photo Studio.

In addition to Boomtown, the Western Development Museum offers visitors a chance to learn about Indigenous history on the prairies and how the population coped during the great depression.

Plus, don’t forget to satisfy your hunger and grab a bite to eat at one of Saskatoon’s most well-known restaurants, the Boomtown Café! Their breakfast is a favourite among Saskatoon residents.

Winter Trip Tips

Try the following tips to make your Winter in Saskatoon as pleasant as possible!

Drive if You Can

While Saskatoon is a very walkable city during the warmer months, it can be hard to get around on foot during the Winter – especially if you’re not staying close to Downtown or Broadway.

In particular, if you want to explore areas just outside the city, like the Wanuskewin Heritage Park, be sure to take a car, as public transit may not always be available.

Dress for the Weather

While Saskatoon has notoriously cold Winters, it’s also one of the sunniest cities in Canada during the Winter months.

Bottom Line
