Moose Jaw was recently branded Canada's 'Most Notorious City' due to it's lively past, but still packs a punch as one of Saskatchewan's best tourist destinations.
1. Little Chicago Entertainment
Multiple themed escape rooms, axe throwing and a board game parlour amp up the fun factor
Little Chicago Entertainment's escape rooms are straight up amazing. Some of the best we've ever done from both a theme and difficulty standpoint. Playing into Moose Jaw's Al Capone connection, our favourite one had us trying to escape from Al's office! You can also show off your inner angry lumberjack by throwing an axe around (at a target, please) and settle the wonderful world of Catan in the gaming parlour (which doubles as a 1920's speakeasy). Check out this fun teaser video & visit the website for more info. www.littlechicagoentertainment.com
2. The Tunnels of Moose Jaw
Head underground for a theatrical re-imagining of Moose Jaw's notorious history
Two entertaining and surprisingly funny theatrical tours await you beneath the streets of Moose Jaw. The Chicago Connection relives Al Capone and his bootlegging days while the Passage to Fortune recounts the experiences of early Chinese immigrants. Both tours are family friendly and a great way to spend a couple hours learning about Moose Jaw! https://www.tunnelsofmoosejaw.com
3) Prairie Storm Paintball
What's more entertaining than shooting your friend/brother/sister/dad/son/daughter/grandma with a paintball!? Not much.
Prairie Storm Paintball offers multiple fields and play types suitable for ages 6 and up. Don't worry, we don't condone shooting a 6 year old with a paintball (they have nerf guns for that!). There's also a field that replicates the WW2 battle of Juno beach! https://www.prairiestormpaintball.com
4) Western Development Museum
Ok, museums may not be the most exciting thing for kids.. but this one is all about things that fly, drive and float!
The Western Development Museum in Moose Jaw's focus is on transportation, with exhibits featuring planes, trains, cars and boats! You can check out some old planes that flew right there in Moose Jaw at 15 Wing as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during WW2, and even see a boat that crashed into a bridge in Saskatoon. https://wdm.ca/moose-jaw/
5) Sukanen Pioneer Village & Museum
Over 100,000 artifacts await you at this museum turned village, including an ocean going vessel stuck in the prairies
The Sukanen Pioneer Village & Museum really is a must see to believe type attraction. With indoor buildings containing over 40 old cars and numerous restored outdoor buildings, the history and spirit of Saskatchewan can be re-lived. Take a walk through the historical village and experience first hand what life was like back in the day! Check out the 2 minute video below about Tom Sukanen, the infamous ship builder! https://www.sukanenshipmuseum.ca/
