Lac du Bonnet District Museum

Halliday Drive, Lac Du Bonnet, MB, Canada
Get directions
July & August: Wednesday to Sunday 12:00 – 4:00

Come discover the stories of those whose visions and ideas created the Lac du Bonnet area through mining discoveries and brick manufacturing, which contributed to the construction of railway lines and Hydro electric generating stations. Located where the prairie meets the rugged boreal shield, Lac du Bonnet is a place where industries collided: plentiful trees led to timber harvesting and pulp production, early residents who settled the land turned to hunting, fishing, trapping and farming to survive, while the aviation industry found this to be the perfect place for their daring bush pilots to venture deeper into the untamed wilderness, further opening up the region for development.

Enjoy exhibits and photo displays focusing on these industries and people, including over twenty-seven nationalities who came together to establish the area known today, while exploring the museum building itself, which is a fully restored, hand-crafted, stacked log cabin located in beautiful Halliday Park.
