The Miami Museum

Incorporated in 1972, The Miami Museum has sustained more than 42 years of continued contributions to local heritage. You can view wonderful displays inside, including the Marion, a doll donated to us by Joan Driedger. With the help of dedicated volunteers, it has gone through a wonderful transformation this year.

Help us keep it that way by sharing some of your time, resources, and expertise with us. Call Dawn Bird at 204-435-0444 to express your interest.
