This was a small but informative museum. The price was reasonable and the displays were pleasant and engaging. The museum is very near Fort Whoop Up and the Nature Center so it's easy to see all three in a few hours.

A typical Canadian local Museum with interesting exhibits. The museum is in a modified hospital building with lovely gardens and sculptures outside, together with great views. Worth a visit.

Was very interesting to learn the history of the area! Loved the interactivity! The printing press was a highlight, as well as the Mountie exhibit. Even as three fully grown adults, we thoroughly enjoyed the ability to get hands-on with our learning!

We found this little museum to be very well organized. The displays were very well done and informative. We also drove around Ft. Whoop Up on the grounds below the museum (it was off season so we didn't go in).
