The WDM will be marking 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.
