Heritage Exhibits

Pioneer ExhibitsThe Museum houses archaeological material from a primary butchering site in South Western Saskatchewan that contains bison material and some stone tools.

Our early settlement collection features artifacts significant to Shaunavon's history. Permanent exhibits include The Crystal Bakery, Agriculture, One-Room Schoolhouse, Everett Baker, Communication, Illerbrun Church, Textiles, Home Life, Work Life, Early Policing and General Store.

A photographic exhibit entitled, “Why Here”, highlights the establishment of Shaunavon in 1913. From bald prairie to town status in less than six months, Shaunavon earned the title of Boomtown.

A future permanent photographic Coal Mining exhibit is under construction.

Other exhibits we have displayed at this time are Millinery and Shaunavon Memorabilia.
