The Museum's main collection consists of natural history specimens and cultural objects that reflect past and contemporary life and culture in Swift Current and southwest Saskatchewan. Natural history specimens include mounted animals, plants, fossils and rocks. Cultural materials include those of aboriginal origin, household objects from the early to mid-20th century, photographs, newspapers and other paper-based materials, and items pertaining to businesses, schools, the military, sports groups, fraternal organizations, and other sectors of urban and rural community life.
In addition to the regular Museum collection, an archival collection documents the history pertaining to individuals, institutions, businesses, and community organizations in the city and region. These are used for research purposes by staff and patrons, as well as for display.
