Wheelchair accessible and is a relaxed performance.


Come visit and learn about Saskatoon’s first public schoolhouse! The original Victoria School, now known as the Little Stone Schoolhouse (LSS), was built in 1887 by stone mason, Alexander Marr. The one-room schoolhouse was used until 1905, then dismantled stone by stone and reconstructed on the University of Saskatchewan campus in 1911.

On Saturday October 7, join us from 12 to 4 pm to participate in hands-on Victorian Era activities and games led by costumed interpreters. Experience what it was like to write on slate chalkboards, try your hand at ball and cup, and see if you can pass the school health inspection!

Please note there are no washrooms or running water in the building.



Diefenbaker Canada Centre

The Right Honourable John G. Diefenbaker dreamed of a united Canada, one that would find strength through diversity. The DCC’s mandate is to build on this legacy by celebrating citizenship, leadership, human rights, and Canada’s role in the international community. The DCC offers a distinctively Canadian cultural experience. In addition to preserving and interpreting the core collection of personal artifacts bequeathed by Mr. Diefenbaker to the University of Saskatchewan, the DCC proudly hosts exhibits that interpret the Canadian experience, with a particular emphasis on the culture and heritage of the nation’s many peoples.
