About the Museum:

The permanent collection is comprised of historical regional folk costumes, household textiles, kylymy (rugs), rushnyky (embroidered towels), archival items including books, postcards, letters, photographs, a collection of pysanky, and handrafted wooden items.

Mrs. Nell Pawlik provided the leadership in founding the Museum in 1950 and was presented with the "Prix Manitoba Award" in 1992.

Our gift shop features masks and totes which incorporate vintage embroidery, as well as books, pysanky (eggs with drawings), beeswax candles, greeting cards, and ceramics. We are planning to be open in July and August with a new exhibit titled "Women of Influence".
