  • Wanuskewin has wonderful art exhibits, cultural information and performances, a great cafe (fry bread, bannock!) as well as archeological sites that are open for public viewing. I however like to go just to walk the trails and be outside there. It's truly magical.
  • It's an amazing treasure trove of Aboriginal history, language and culture! I highly recommend a visit!
  • Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Had a pleasant visit and learned how to set up a tipi!
  • Really nice trails, good food in the restaurant. A bit pricey if they don't have any events going, but still a very good time.
  • It was absolutely beautiful trails. There was nothing to see inside which was disappointing so to pay $10 to walk on trails was kind of ridiculous...
