The Sam Waller Museum Research Library is available to the public. It houses a collection of books, periodicals and documents relating to the history of The Pas and area. It is not a lending library but photocopies can be provided for a fee.

Research Requests

Researchers are always welcome to view archival materials and artefacts at the Sam Waller Museum. Please contact museum staff before your visit to arrange a time and find out about our access regulations. If you are out of town and have a research request for the curator, please contact us and we'd be happy to help! In order for staff to conduct research for you based on our holdings, there is a $20 service fee for the first hour of research and $15 per each additional hour. Due to staff time constraints, researchers may be referred to a local student or researcher if the request will involve a significant investment of time.
