Things to See & Do

Gordon Orr Museum – Binscarth Museum

Community: Binscarth


Mr. Gordon Orr purchased a building in Binscarth and moved his artifacts into it making a small display.  In 1983, a second larger building was purchased—the former North American Lumber Yard—and his artifacts were relocated.  Since then many community members have donated antiques.  In 1991, with the passing of Gordon Orr, the museum became property of the Village of Binscarth and was declared a heritage site.
Included in the displays are a summer kitchen, a military display, a general store, a livery stable, an old fashion one-room school, a church, a replica of Fort Ellice, and an agricultural area.

The museum is open during the summer, Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  There is no admission but donations are always welcome to support the operation of the museum.
