  • No scheduled visit to this Museum, which ended up being a pleasant surprise. Of beautiful exhibitions which explains a lot about the natural history of this province.

  • Came here to do research for a biology project in University. It's a smaller museum but I really enjoyed it. I'm a huge history buff and love going to museums so this was another great experience going to a museum! They have an upper and lower level to the museum so make sure you check out both and they have an awesome dinosaur! Definitely my favorite part
  • Thank you Royal Sask Museum for all your hard working and fabulous art you put in this amazing museum. The most places/items we love are those animals among real or like real natural trees with backgrounds of more-than-amazing paintings. With curve background technique you make it like 3D show and wow! Thank you! It is really an amazing museum!
  • Amazing place to visit. And lots of things to enjoy. Excellent work done by the city council for local and foreign peopl to learn more about Saskatchewan in realistic way. Kudos to everyone for creating and maintaining
  • I highly recommend visiting this museum! Very well maintained exhibits, shockingly good taxidermy compared to most museums we have been to (we've been to alot all over Canada), very interesting displays and topics! Loved the native plants display, the incredible diaramas and the first nations section! Fascinating for kids and adults alike. Very friendly staff too! The first nations section was perfect for my grade 6 daughter who is studying the same topic in school right now! Very happy to have visited! It took about 3 hours to get through it all while paying attention to all the reading. Entry by donation. Great gift shop with local artists souvenirs!
  • I stood waiting at the front desk for someone to tell me what to do, but the four of them just stood there talking and ignored me. I ended up just walking in and figuring it out myself. The exhibits were great, and so was the gift shop.
