Land Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Red River Métis Nation.


We are the intersection of where our past meets the future. Through the innovative use of technology, multimedia and leveraging of carefully researched and creatively documented stories of the City’s past, our museum brings to life Selkirk’s history in a way that educates, entertains and inspires local citizens and visitors alike.

Rather than being a museum for the city, we turn our city into a museum by providing a real-time, interactive, heritage experience.  We blend the digital world with the physical. Walk through our city and through your digital device see our community as it was. Witness the evolution of this place. Meet the people who, through their tenacity and vision:  built the streets; established the institutions; curated the culture; and begot the people that surround you.

History is written every day; therefore our work will never be done. The Selkirk Museum exists in a perpetual state of construction; collecting new artifacts, telling new stories, inspiring new Selkirkians.

Our Vision

A vibrant community inspired and embolden by a deep appreciation for its past.

Our Mission

To capture, preserve and share the heritage of Selkirk; to educate present and future generations about Selkirk and its contributions; to inspire a sense of connection to this place and its people
