Yorkton WDM - Story of People

The Yorkton WDM chronicles the stories of immigrants to Saskatchewan. From a display of an attic filled with toys to an authentic log home inside the Museum, from the giant Twin City to the Morris rod weeder, exciting exhibits will help you gain insight into the undaunted spirit of the people who came to this land.
