Soo Line Historical Museum

Located on Highway #39 East, the Soo Line Historical Museum is open year round with extended hours in June, July and August. For information on hours of operation and/or guided tours, phone 306.842.2922.

A stroll through this Museum, housed in what was originally an electric utility power plant building, will peak your curiosity. It houses a collection of artifacts that were used by Weyburn and district pioneers, a collection of Native artifacts, the Soo Line Historical Archives plus the Charles Wilson Silver Collection. The Wilson Silver Collection is the largest one man collection of silver known to exist in Canada. There are more than 5,000 items dated from 1750 to 1972. You will view everything from full tea services to opera glasses and spoons. Mr. Wilson was a bachelor who lived on the family farm northwest of Weyburn. After a lifetime of attending auction sales, he chose to will his collection to the Soo Line Historical Museum so everyone might enjoy his lifetime of collecting.

The Museum building also houses Weyburn's Tourist Information Booth as well as a small souvenir shop.
