About the Museum:

Parks Canada designated the Village of Neubergthal as a national historic site, having national historic and architectural significance, being the best surviving example (on the prairies) of an early permanent agricultural settlement. All this in an authentic setting, a working village today.

The village was founded in the late 1870s by Mennonites invited from Russia (Ukraine). At least two barns date from the original founding years. There are many other early housebarns. An 1890s housebarn is open for summer tours. Other buildings, including a restored one-room country school, are available for visits and tours year round. Local guides, storytellers, are available by appointment.
