The Binscarth and District Gordon Orr Memorial Museum 162 – 2nd Ave, Binscarth MB
The Binscarth and District Gordon Orr Memorial Museum
is the result of the dream and dedication of one person. Mr. Gordon Orr had a love for native artifacts and antiques. He purchased
a building in Binscarth and moved his artifacts into it to make a small display. In 1983, a second larger building was purchased –
the former North American Lumber Yard – and his artifacts were relocated. Since then, many community members have donated antiques.
In 1991, with the passing of Gordon Orr, the museum became property of the Village of Binscarth and was declared a heritage site.
Take a journey through the past and tour displays of olden day items. Included in the displays are a general store, a summer kitchen,
a military display, a livery stable, and old fashioned one-room school, a church, a replica of Fort Ellice, and an agricultural area.
Several areas of the museum are dedicated to the history of Binscarth, including photos of old sports teams, such as the Binscarth
Orioles, and information about past local businesses.
The museum is open June through August, Monday to Friday from 9 am to noon and
1 PM to PM. There is no admission but donations are always welcome to support the operation of the museum.
