It is just too easy to spend an afternoon at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon, there is an entrance fee, but the funds raised help support the museum - along with an army of volunteers.

Thanks for the kind words Gordon - and you are right, we could not do what we do as effectively without the help of so many wonderful volunteers!

The Festival of Trees at the Western Development Museum is my favorite way to start my Christmas celebrations. Besides the trees I love the festive displays and the volunteers that come out to work in the old buildings. I recommend this museum to everyone!
