Take a step into the past
Visit us to walk along our boardwalk of our early town and look through the old interior of buildings and stores, preserved as they once were. Then take a trip forward to the beginning of the electric era. Don't forget to check out our vast display of antique cars. There is something to interest everyone, why not come see for yourself?
At Assiniboia & District Museum you will feel as though you stepped back in time. Since our re-launch in 1995, in our new building, we have been dedicated to enriching the lives of all who visit our space.
For regular guests, we try to keep things interesting by regularly hosting exciting events and fresh new seasonal exhibits. Out of town guests enjoy our beloved exhibits such as the Farquhar Car exhibit, Boardwalk through time, and the Prentice Safari exhibit. We hope you will come to our amazing museum soon.
