The Willow Bunch Museum is situated in Willow Bunch Sask., in a picturesque valley on No. 36 Highway. It was established in 1972 by a group of university students under the leadership of Donald Philippon and Rose Giraudier. The Project was made possible with the funding from "Opportunities for Youth - Program Grant".

The collection of artefacts was first housed in a vacant hospital. Within 13 years the museum collection outgrew the premises. In 1985 the museum moved into the Heritage building which was once owned by the Sisters of the Cross. The museum rents 2 floors of the building from the Town of Willow Bunch.

Today the museum boasts of eleven rooms. Each room has a special designation - Room One: Giant Edouard Beaupre; Room Two: Homestead/Pioneer Room; Room Three: Chapel: Room Four: Archives; Room Five: First Habitants; Room Six: Tools/Technology; Room Six B: NWMP/RCMP; Room Seven: Classroom; Room Eight: Hospital; Room Nine: Homemaker's Room; Upstairs Corridor: Veterans from World War I and II, Royal Canadian Legionnaires, Fossils and Petrified Wood Specimens and Metis Family Portraits. Downstairs Corridor: Charles Skinner, various household artefacts, Leo Holcombe and RM #42 Office.
