The Noble Experiment: Temperance & Prohibition in Canada
September 20, 2014 - January 25, 2015

Canadians have been arguing about alcohol for at least two hundred years! This bilingual exhibit, on loan from the Peterborough Museum & Archives, explores the debate that affected Canadians on every level: from in their own homes to the national and international stages. It is a story of crime and smuggling, of action and danger, of humor and morality.

The WDM will mark the outbreak of the First World War with four showcase exhibits – initially, one at each of our four Museums beginning August 4, 2014. We hope visitors will pause at our showcase exhibits and read the interesting Saskatchewan-based stories they have to tell. Later in 2014, the four showcases will be combined into one exhibit that will travel throughout the WDM system over the next few years.
