Sam Waller Museum (The Pas)

Manitoba Star Attraction, Prov. Heritage Site

Sam Waller

The Sam Waller Museum, a Manitoba Star Attraction, is located at The Pas Community Courthouse, the oldest brick building in northern Manitoba, built in 1916. Designed to be multi-purpose, it was the centre for administration and justice in Manitoba's New North. In addition, it provided a centre for social activity in the booming town of The Pas. The building was designated as a provincial heritage site in 1987, at which time renovations commenced to house the museum, which opened in 1994.

As the Museum website states, "A lifelong collector, Sam Waller called himself a "Pack Rat" and referred to his museum as a "Clutter-torium". Following in the tradition of the Victorian-era collector of oddities and curiosities, he amassed an astounding and eclectic array of unusual items over his lifetime. But more than a mere collector, Sam was also a dedicated and knowledgeable naturalist, a taxidermist, and a serious museum curator and teacher."

The museum's permanent collection contains over 70,000 items, including "natural history specimens, human history artifacts, books and library materials, photographs and negatives, fine art pieces and the archives of the Town of The Pas."

The museum houses a gift shop, meeting room, research library, and tourist information centre. 

Location:
306 Fischer Avenue

Hours:
The Museum is open year-round, 7 days a week, except Statutory Holidays (Open Canada Day & August Civic Holiday). Regular hours: 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm; open 10:00 am - 5:00 pm during July and August.
