The Life Sciences Gallery has dioramas of the ecological regions in the province. You can visit the different regions - grassland, parkland and forest - and learn about the animals that live in different habitats. There are exhibits to show how animals adapt to winter. There is even an inside view of a beaver lodge.

In the Earth Sciences Gallery you can see how Saskatchewan once looked. Long ago the province was covered with mountains, volcanoes, seas and glaciers and was home to giant reptiles, dinosaurs and other extinct creatures.

The First Nations Gallery contains dioramas, murals, sculptures and colorful displays to help you learn about the art, traditions and lifestyles of the First Nations people. One large diorama is a winter camp with buffalo-hide tipis. An Elder is telling stories to the children. There are exhibits of stone tools, medicines, furs and guns.
