Waskesiu Heritage Museum

Welcome

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Waskesiu Heritage Museum will be closed until further notice.  

All activities usually undertaken by the Museum such as Community Bingo, Canada Day parade, Yard Sale, Children's Festival, concessions at the Three Island Paddling and Music Festival, Heritage Day, Volunteer Appreciation event, and the Lakeside Festival will be cancelled for this summer.  

These events and regular Museum activities will resume next summer. 

Any changes to this announcement will be posted here.


The Waskesiu Heritage Museum displays the human history of Waskesiu Lake and Prince Albert National Park since its 1928 creation. We feature an original canvas-roofed shack tent and a replica camp kitchen from the early days in Waskesiu. Other outdoor exhibits include a fire tower cupola, a portable cabin and shed fondly known as a dog house, a railcart portaging a canoe, and wash day equipment. An original log building houses indoor exhibits and displays.
