Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cook’s Creek Heritage Museum (Dugald, RM of Springfield)

This museum in the Rural Municipality of Springfield focuses on the Galician (Ukrainian) pioneers of the area. It was started by the parish priest, Father Krivanek, when he began collecting pioneer artefacts so the history of the people of the area would not be lost. The main museum is in the old church rectory and contains Slavic costumes, folk art, paintings, instruments, religious items as well as various antique clothing and household items. Some of the items were brought over from Europe. The rest of the museum consists of moved pioneer homes, a barn, farm machinery and the Reid blacksmith shop that was originally located in the community of Birds Hill.
