Western Development Museum - History of Transportation, Moose Jaw

(4.5/5 based on 140 reviews on the web)
Discover Saskatchewan's transportation and farming machinery history at Western Development Museum - History of Transportation. The museum started in the mid 1940s, when modern technologies began to render much of the farming machinery obselete. Tour the collection to see restored heritage displays, including railway cars, local aviation, and snowbirds, as well as a number of curiosity pieces. Look out for the museum's calliope: this steam musical instrument resembles a piano and produces sound through a system of whistles using steam--one of only two operating examples in Canada.
