The third part of our sister’s trip found us at a random roadside museum: The Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum.

Yes, a ship. In Saskatchewan. The story is about a man who wanted to get back home, so he started building a boat to take through Saskatchewan, to Hudson Bay, and beyond.

The beginnings of his boat are on display along with a make shift historic village. I just love how communities in Saskatchewan work hard at displaying pieces of history. Every old building has been converted to some type of shop, whether it be a print shop full of old typewriters, or a barber shop with chairs and contraptions that look like something off of the Green Mile.

Here is the start of the ship.  Sadly, this man never made it to the sea, just to a mental hospital.

I love the store fronts of the past.

Every shop is packed full of donated goods.  All telling a story of Saskatchewan's past.

This post is not sponsored. It was just a great little pit stop on our way to Moose Jaw Tunnels. Let me know what you think, if you stop by!

I'd love to hear from you:)
