Anyone looking to take the family out for a day full of curiosity, learning, and fun filled activities like ropemaking and corn grinding, should make their way down to the Pembina Threshermens Museum this Saturday, July 13th.  

We had the privilege of speaking with Carrie Heenan, the Museum’s Event’s Coordinator, who walked us through what would be happening at Pioneer Days. “We have the barrel train for kids... You can tour the buildings; everything will be open. Everything from the Siemens house to the wildlife exhibits. There will be lots of old tractors on display, and actually, the Eden Mental Health Centre is bringing their Tractor Trek to the museum in the afternoon.” 

The Museum will be operating from 10am to 5pm. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $5 for youth between the ages of nine and 15, and children 8 and under are free. 

People will also be able to cool off by purchasing ice cream in the old general store inside of the museum. “There [are] chocolate bars, ice cream, you can get some hot dogs there if you want... there’s all kinds of neat stuff.”
