Load up the kids and head to these fun winter attractionsThe seasons are changing and you may be planning ahead for some indoor family fun ideas. Here are some of our top picks from around the province:
Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Saskatoon
Interpreting over 6,000 years of Northern Plains Indian culture, Wanuskewin Heritage Park contains 19 pre-contact sites and two historic sites that offer a glimpse into the province’s past and its indigenous people. Walking trails take you past medicine wheels, teepee rings and a buffalo pound, while interpretive programming and cultural activities further enrich the experience.
Western Development Museum: 1910 Boomtown, Saskatoon
Transport yourself back to a time when the clip-clop of horses filled the air and the rumble of steam engines was common. You don't just visit this museum, you live it!
Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Regina
Explore Saskatchewan and its past, present and future. The Royal Saskatchewan Museum furthers an understanding of our province’s natural history and Aboriginal cultures.
RCMP Heritage Centre, Regina
Dedicated to telling the story of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the RCMP Heritage Centre is located on the “doorstep” of RCMP Academy, Depot Division, which is the sole training academy for the force. Every Mountie begins his or her career as a cadet in Regina.
Tunnels of Moose Jaw, Moose Jaw
The Tunnels of Moose Jaw offers two distinctly different and compelling tours that bring history and folklore to life. The Chicago Connection tells the story of rumoured rum running, and Passage to Fortune is the dramatic retelling of the life of Chinese immigrants to Canada.

Planes, trains and automobiles - pretty much any mode of transportation that can get you across the prairies is on display here. The museum also features a gallery dedicated to the world-famous aerobatic team, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.
