After driving by the museum more times then you could count we finally decided to venture in. On the day we went there were a number of school children going through the displays.

Great museum about the settlement of the prairies. There is an old town main street re-creation based on 1910. Shops often have volunteer staff for an air of friendly authenticity. The working blacksmith shop on Sundays is a must see.

When we visited the western development museum I found it very well displayed and set up. It had a lot of artifacts in every part of the old western town displays. I totally enjoyed the railroad engine display. Found the whole museum with gift shop and food outlet very good value for the price of admission.
