Like a trip back in time the western Development Museum evoked many memories from the life of this Baby-Boomer! Lots of terrific items and artifacts - everything ranging from the Beatles to Boxcars and in-between! Something for everyone no matter their age.

Wife and I took our grandchildren, was a very excellent experience, reminiscing over the history of Saskatchewan and rural life. Great for kids and adults alike.

Hidden gem. A must see if your visiting Moosejaw. Huge amount of vintage memorabilia. Displayed nicely. Vintage cars, boats, trains. It's worth a visit. Very glad I decided to take my kids. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Been here twice now, will need to go again as there is SO much to see! Certainly worth the small fee to get in and enjoy yourself. Many photo ops here, nicely spread out so you are not on top of others who are also enjoying the items to look at.

Great place to lose yourself for several hours. Take advantage of yesteryear. Items go back a few hundred years.
