School Programs

The Musée St. Joseph Museum was established to preserve the history and culture of the Rural Municipality of Montcalm. The museum features a historical village, agricultural buildings, a tourism center and a campground. Students will have a unique opportunity to see, and even experience first-hand, how early pioneer farmers lived and worked in the region more than 100 years ago.

Exploring the museum’s 20 buildings will provide hours of educational fun and entertainment. Imagine what it was like to live and do chores in a log home built in the 1860s. Sit in wooden desk in a one-room school house. Sing in the choir loft of a small rural church. Shop at the general store, and while you’re there, get your mail or make a phone call. Explore exhibits of tractors and other agricultural machinery.  Look around the leather workshop and the wood-working shop. Discover the significance of the stationary engine and the history of the Manitoba sugar beet industry.
