About the Museum:
The Manitoba Agricultural Museum holds the largest collection of vintage farm machinery in Canada with more than 500 implements, most dating back to the Pioneer era of Manitoba. The Homesteaders' Village represents village life in the early 20th century with an 1883 schoolhouse, a post office that once served all of northwestern Manitoba, the typical log houses of the era, an elegant clapboard mansion, a general store, a railway station, and more! This collection comes to life in many events throughout the year.
The Manitoba Agricultural Museum’s signature festival, the Manitoba Threshermen's Reunion and Stampede, runs in late July featuring vintage farm machinery in action, daily machinery parade, children’s activities, pioneer fashion show, music and more. Campground facilities include, playground, dump station, showers and washrooms. 15 amp and 30 amp service. Daily rates $20 to $30.
