Spend hours devouring the history and culture that encases Whitemouth at the Whitemouth Municipal Museum. The museum tells the stories of the communities of Whitemouth, Seven Sisters Falls, River Hills, and Elma.

Explore a 1929 train caboose, a 1909 pioneer house, antique farm machinery collection, a blacksmith shop and log trapper’s cabin, a military M109 A4 Howitzer tank, and a whole artifact building with special treasures and unique items.

One of the most interesting stories and facts that are housed at the museum is the life of Dr. Charlotte Whitehead Ross or “The Iron Rose” as some people like to call her. In 1875, Charlotte achieved her goal of receiving her medical certificate from the Women’s Medical College in Philadelphia. From 1881 to 1912, she practiced medicine in the region – even though she was not allowed to hold a medical license in the Province of Manitoba during that time, as she was the first woman physician in Manitoba.
