One of the best places to explore when visiting Yorkton is the Western Development Museum. It’s the largest human history museum in Saskatchewan and has four different locations across the province with collections that span almost 80,000 historical artifacts. Each location is focused on unique parts of local history, with Yorkton’s centering on stories of immigration. 

 

The museum always has exciting events on the go, and the end of August is no exception. Keep reading for an overview of some of the upcoming events and workshops taking place at the Yorkton location that makes for a great family-friendly day trip during your local staycation.
