A Prairie Legacy

Discover how bison influenced the history of Manitoba and the lives of Indigenous peoples and pioneers.

Step back in time

Venture through the aspen forest onto the open prairie, where you will experience a close-up encounter with 30 grunting, munching bison. Test your skills as you power a mighty Voyageur canoe around the lake. Explore a Plains Cree Tipi and marvel at the design and functionality — cool in summer and warm in winter, offering a respite from the prairie winds. Feel the smoothness of a hand-crafted black spoon, fashioned from a bison horn. Step inside a one-room pioneer sod house and savour wild bush tea and bannock over a campfire.

Tours run every second Wednesday, all summer long.
