Located adjacent to Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary and Interpretive Centre, the Whiteshell Trappers’ Museum was built by local trappers in 1997, possibly the only one of its kind in North America. It was modeled after a typical trappers’ cabin, but is a little larger to accommodate company. Drop by and visit with an honest to goodness trapper. Let them answer your questions about the history of trapping and the fur-bearing animals of the Whiteshell. You will also learn about modern trapping techniques and the important role trappers play in wildlife management. Immerse yourself in the trapping lifestyle and the wildlife of the Whiteshell as you visit the displays and hear trapper stories. The museum is open and staffed every Saturday and Sunday and holidays from 10 am to 4 pm starting the May long weekend to the end of September. In July and August they are also open on Fridays. Admission is by donation. Call us for more information on the museum, to book a tour or to arrange for a Whiteshell trapper to speak with your group or school. Bus tours welcome.
