Dairy Museum of Manitoba (St. Claude, RM of Grey)

In July 2004, the Dairy Museum of Manitoba, the only museum of its kind in Manitoba, was officially opened at St. Claude in the Rural Municipality of Grey.

The 2,400-square-foot museum presents through artifacts and photographs a history of the dairy industry in Manitoba, including the involvement of the Trappists.

There is information on breeds of dairy cattle, and displays of dairy equipment used in St. Claude and elsewhere. There is even a display of 72 types of barbed wire dating back to the 1870s.

Also at the site is the former Bell School building and St. Claude’s Canadian Pacific Railway type 15 station, built in 1930. (End)
