Who We Are

The museum was established in May of 2019 and had the grand opening on November 11th 2019 with one of Estevan’s Second World War veterans, Jim Spenst present for the ribbon cutting. 

The museum was opened with the primary intent of education the youth in the Southeast about our military history and contributions. The secondary intent is to preserve, record and educate people to our military history and stories of all those who have served from this area as well as Saskatchewan and teach Canadian Military history in general.
