The exhibit will feature movable carts, props, and building facades that can represent the past, present, and future of Saskatoon and allow children to dream big.

Gordon Rawlinson said the exhibit will allow families to come together and create memories.

The museum is expected to open in the former Mendel Art Gallery building in 2019.
