The Museum

20,000+ Artifacts & 12 Heritage Buildings


The Clayton McLain Memorial Museum is located in the Town of Cut Knife, Saskatchewan,  approximately 50 kms west of The Battlefords on Highway 40 / Poundmaker Trail, and 100 kms southeast of Lloydminster.  

Our Heritage Village is at 101 Hill Avenue adjacent to Tomahawk Park. Watch for museum signs on Hwy 40, both east and west of Cut Knife. If you’re in town, look for signage on the Library building on the south-west corner of Broad Street and Hill Avenue.


Staff are employed during the summer months to manage the museum’s operations. Visitors are welcome to explore the heritage buildings at their own pace or join a guided tour. The last tour of the day departs the Duvall House at 3 pm. More about Tours here.

Sending our appreciation to every single 2022 Museum Visitor. Thanks for your support!


The museum hosts Coffee & Pie days in the Duvall House numerous times throughout the summer. Coffee or tea and a slice of home-made pie is a popular museum fundraiser enjoyed by visitors and locals alike!

The indoor exhibits and the archives are available year-round by appointment. The park, outdoor displays, and the Tomahawk are accessible year round, weather permitting. Visit On the Grounds for more info.


Ample free parking is available on site.


Most of the museum buildings are wheelchair accessible. Picnics may be enjoyed on the Museum grounds, near the pond, or by the Tomahawk. Public washrooms are open during the summer months.
