The Western Development Museum first opened its doors in 1949. Originally a grass-roots movement, the Museum now operates four branches across the province and offer dynamic exhibitions, temporary exhibits, special events, and educational programming. Since its inception, the Museum network has preserved and recorded the social and economic development of the province by exploring four separate themes: transportation, agriculture, economy, and people.
The North Battleford Branch of the WDM focuses on the rural aspects of pioneer life in Saskatchewan in the 1920’s. The museum is comprised of a heritage village which allows visitors to explore a general store, a grain elevator, churches, businesses and family homes.  Special events, temporary exhibitions and educational programs are offered throughout the year.
