The Hillcrest Museum in Souris, Manitoba was formed in 1967 when a group of local citizens purchased the former home of Fred Sowden to establish a museum that would preserve and exhibit the rich history of the development of the community. 
The museum is listed as one of Canada’s most important heritage properties.

 

Museum Hours

Saturday  10 AM to 5 PM
Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM

Starting June 27
Saturday to Wednesday 10 AM to 5 PM

The museum sits adjacent to the famous Souris Swinging Bridge, and this is no coincidence.  The original swinging bridge was said to have been built so the "Squire" could easily get to his properties on the other side of the river.  The current swinging bridge is much safer than the original bridge built so long ago, but the walk over the river is just as scenic now as it was then.
