Things To Do in Saskatoon
1. Discover the Western Development Museum
1910 Boomtown will take visitors back in time, capturing the bustling atmosphere of a typical prairie settlement. Daily life is portrayed in the reconstructed buildings, from the general store to the blacksmiths. Fascinating exhibits are also part of the Western Development Museum, covering over 100 years of the region’s history.
2. Indulge at the Black Fox Farm and Distillery
A treasure within the province, this in-farm distillery produces award-wining spirits and hosts regular tasting events to share their incredible produce with visitors. Make sure you purchase a couple of handcrafted bottles home to enjoy long after you head home.
3. Explore Batouche National Park
Absorb the history of Saskatoon with a visit to Batouche National Park. Ride the shuttle or rent a canoe and explore the waters, taking you on a journey through time as you learn about life on the banks of the river for a 19th Century settler. We recommend you make the most of your scenic surroundings. Pitch a tent and wild camp for a few days, allowing yourself to really become in tune with nature.
4. Ukrainian Museum of Canada
Integral to Canada’s multicultural history, this museum is dedicated to the many settlers from Ukraine in the province through artefacts, archives and first-hand accounts of life as an immigrant. Located in vibrant downtown Saskatoon, many of the items are over 100 years old and provide a glance into Canada’s past.

Open in the summer months weekly from Wednesday until Sunday, this entertainment centre is home to plays and concerts in the warmer evenings. You will also find a variety of food booths and traditional music during your visit. The Barn Playhouse provides the perfect day out for all the family.
