Picture yourself, over 125 years ago, making the arduous journey by horse-drawn cart, over miles of rough trail, lured by the promise of 160 acres to call your own. Such was the scenario when the Carberry Plains area was established by European settlers from Eastern Canada. Visit the Carberry Plains Museum to touch and feel early prairie life. The extensive artifact collections include paintings from the eccentric Criddle-Vane family and memorabilia from famous former residents Tommy Douglas, Stanley Knowles and WWI pilot Wop May. The Museum also includes our unique gingerbread house, a stunning tribute to a fanciful architectural style. One of only three in Canada.
