The Collection

20,000 Strong

The Regina Plains Museum’s collection consists of over 20,000 artifacts of historical significance that are held in public trust; the largest being a steam locomotive to the smallest being the size of a lapel pin. The collection includes material related to Regina’s economic history and the community’s social and cultural life.

In fact, the RPM has amalgamated the Regina Police Service’s historical collection, the Regina General Hospital’s collection of historical material as well as, the Saskatchewan Pharmacy Museum Society’s material related to Regina. As the city’s civic museum the RPM is the only organization within the community with a mandate to collect and preserve historical material directly related to the growth and development of the capital.
