A tour of our museum includes both the rich and fascinating story of the historic Town of The Pas and region, and the strange and eclectic collection of Mr. Sam Waller. And a visit to the Sam Waller Museum wouldn't be complete without a trip to the old town gaol! The Community Building and Court House's multifaceted history can still be found today in a variety of existing architectural details, including the original exterior, and interior doorways and trim, and the court house defendant's box and jail cells.
Historical Walking Tours
Glimpse the history of The Pas by joining Museum staff in a narrated tour of the downtown area. Historical highlights include a tour of Christ Church, The Pas' oldest standing building (1896) that was furnished by a wintering relief party in search of the missing Franklin expedition. Enjoy a stroll down LaRose Avenue with its colourful history as "Millionaire's Row", and visit Devon Park with its panoramic view across the Saskatchewan River to the progressive Opaskwayak Cree Nation. Tours may be booked throughout the year by appointment.
Throughout the year, staff at the Sam Waller Museum host a wide range of educational programs for tour groups and the general public. Call to book a Museum Tour or a Historical Walking Tour of the town. Or book a spot on one of our natural history field trips or any other of our many public programs.
