Plan Your Visit!
A visit to the Virden Pioneer Home Museum acquaints guests with the way of life of an established Victorian family in the Canadian West. The large brick-veneer home, we now call the museum, was built in 1888 on "Quality Hill", which represented one of the wealthiest districts in early Virden. Each room has been re-furbished to the charm of the era with numerous period items and furniture, which gives it a homey, almost lived in feeling.
In addition to the household displays, the museum houses a post office, general store, school house, medical, local art, and military displays. The Virden Pioneer Home Museum is home to one of the most extensive museum collections in rural Manitoba; it houses more than 11, 000 artifacts!
