The Assiniboia & District Museum is owned by the Town of Assiniboia and operated under the Department of Parks, Recreation, Culture & Tourism. The management of the facility and programs are performed by the Assiniboia and District Historical Society.

Much of the heritage of Western Canada traces its roots through the Assiniboia district. A stroll down the boardwalk will bring you back in time to our prairie town of 1912. Meet the pioneers, our forefathers, who braved the elements and had the courage to embark on a journey across the vast prairie to the unknown.Within these walls, the Museum salutes the visionaries of our past.
The museum also houses the Prentice African Safari Exhibit, 17 vintage cars from 1916 –64, a large pictorial history and photo archive collection of the area, with a Pole Shed in the yard with agricultural machinery among the many more interesting things to see.
Prentice African Safari Exhibit
Wilfred Prentice was a farmer, inventor and businessman from the Assiniboia area. Wilfred’s hobby was to go on African safaris and he had quite a large animal collection, some of the collection was donated to the Town of Assiniboia and is on display at the Assiniboia & District Museum.
