Our Stories: Artifacts Tell All!

May 10-October 31, 2016

A collection of artifacts has been assembled from the original pieces used during the time that it was a Vice-Regal Office (1891-1945). The exhibit's featured artifacts have been given a voice and will be telling their own stories. We encourage you to explore the Government House collection through these specially featured artifacts and the fun, engaging activities that are part of our 125th Anniversary Celebrations.

In celebration of the Government House 125th anniversary, the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan developed this special exhibit using their diverse collection of records.  This exhibit explores the major developmental periods of Government House over the past 125 years.

Always an invaluable source, the Archives is responsible for acquiring, preserving and making available records of historical significance which document all facets of life in the Province of Saskatchewan.

Votes For Women: Celebrating 100 years!

March 14 – October 31, 2016

The Canadian movement for women’s right to vote was very active in the early twentieth century with pamphlets, public speeches, and peaceful demonstrations. The right to vote provincially and the right to hold provincial office would be the first steps in achieving national franchise. The Manitoba was the first granting the right vote and Saskatchewan followed shortly after on March 14, 1916.

Come and explore our exhibit to learn more about the movement, the people involved and Government House’s connection. You can even vote on a weekly changing topic.
