About Us

Located on the outskirts of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, the Fort la Reine Museum is home to 25+ unique heritage structures. The homes and buildings are designed to illustrate the lifestyle of a prairie community from 1738 – 1950. Explore the life of early pioneers, discover the trials of frontier entrepreneurs, follow along on their journey of trading furs for goods, learn about our regional Indigenous histories, and step back in time to learn about domestic life from the 1850s-1950s.
