Top Picks: Indoor Historical Fun
We are truly blessed in Saskatchewan. Every year, without ever getting on a plane or into a car, we are transported to a whole new world. In this world of winter, ice crystals make the crisp, clean air sparkle and dance. Fresh, soft snow turns everything it touches white. This doesn’t mean we have to stop exploring though. In fact, this is the perfect time to move indoors and discover what these top attractions have to offer.
Tunnels of Moose Jaw
Beneath the streets of Moose Jaw, stories of the tunnels come alive! Choose from two guided theatrical tours. One reveals the “Chicago Connection” between the city’s bootlegging past and its alleged association with Al Capone. The other shares the harrowing story of Chinese immigrants in Canada and their “Passage to Fortune.”
