About the Museum:

The Seton Centre displays artwork, books and memorabilia by world-famous artist, writer and naturalist, Ernest Thompson Seton. The Centre focuses on Manitoba and Carberry Sandhills natural history.

Visit Little Seton Park, behind the museum, and see the display of native plants of the area and the wolf sculpture. The sculpture represents Seton's devotion to the wild animals in the Sprucewoods area and Lobo the Wolf, one of his stories in Wild Animals I Have Known. Seton ended up with the nickname Wolf and signed his books with an added wolf paw print.
