3 Quirky Places to Check out in Moose Jaw

Looking for something to do in Moose Jaw that isn’t the giant Moose Statue? You are in luck. Check out these three quirky places in Moose Jaw.


  1. Western Development Museum

Housing a collection of approximately 80,000 artifacts, the Western Development Museum is the largest human history museum in Saskatchewan. The museum has lots of pre-1950 steam engines, tractors, and other farm equipment, but also has household furnishings, items from pop culture, and crafts. If people used it to live and work in Saskatchewan, you can find it at the Western Development Museum.

  1. Tunnels of Moose Jaw

The Tunnels of Moose Jaw has been offering family-friendly theatrical tours since 2000. Open year-round, the walking tours take place under the streets of downtown Moose Jaw. The “Chicago Connection” tour depicts the bootlegging of Al Capone during Prohibition. The struggles of Chinese immigrants in the early 1900s is brought to life in the “Passage to Fortune” tour. The guides and actors bring history to life in this one-of-a-kind attraction.

  1. Sukanen Ship and Pioneer Museum

The mission of the Sukanen Ship and Pioneer Museum is to preserve and restore historical artifacts from Saskatchewan. The highlight of the museum is a ship built by Finnish immigrant Tom Sukanen during the Great Depression. Tom Sukanen is now buried next to his ship on the museum grounds. Other attractions at the Pioneer Museum include the Diefenbaker Homestead, Pioneer Village, and the Fire Collections.

If you love history, there is so much to see and do in Moose Jaw. From pioneer artifacts to theatrical tours, you can’t miss with one of these three offbeat attractions.
