W.R. Orr Building

This building was once home to the Union Bank of Canada beginning in 1910. Now it is the location of the Maple Creek Visitor Centre and is full of activity. It also houses the museum archival collection, and the (1903-2005) Burnett & Orr Law Office Exhibit!

1935 Log Museum Complex

Now believed to be the oldest purpose built museum in Saskatchewan, this 1935 Log Museum is currently undergoing some very extensive restorations. A new and larger Log Museum is also being constructed immediately behind the original. Work is being completed on both buildings as donations and fund-raising efforts allow.

C.M. Glascock Building

This 1909-2009 Automobile dealership houses the artifact collection of S.W. Sask Oldtimers’ Museum while the Log Museum is under construction. Exhibits interpreting the Frontier period of the Cypress Hills focus on the First Nations, Metis, NWMP, Ranching, and early settlement.
