The content in the gallery focuses on cultural diversity within Canada and on past events that have directly affected present Canadian identity. As such, they are ideal for newcomer groups and align well with the social studies outcomes in the Saskatchewan curriculum. Gallery tours can focus on a specific exhibit of interest or combine various exhibits into one tour.

"One Canada, one Canada, where Canadians will have preserved to them the control of their own economic and political destiny. Sir John A. Macdonald gave his life to this party. He opened the west. He saw Canada from east to west. I see a new Canada-a Canada of the North!"Diefenbaker (Winnipeg, Man.)
