About every 30 miles down the THC and Yellowhead highways, there are these “museums” where the locals collect anything older than 22 years old and call it “antique” or “historical.” One such place was the Fort La Reine Museum near Portage La Prairie.
We almost always visit these sites even though they are typically the same thing all the time. Nearby, we also visited the grounds of the Manitoba Agricultural Museum and Homestead as well.
Sometimes we get to see some cool old tractors or cars from the 1910’s or so, but for the most part, it’s just a collection of oddities and buildings. A good place to get out of the heat and humidity and jibber jabber with some of the locals.
We returned to driving on the THC and crossed into Saskatchewan.
