OUR MISSION
The Fort la Reine Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of Portage la Prairie.


ABOUT US
Fort la Reine Museum is home to 28 unique heritage sites. The homes and buildings are designed not only to show the artifacts, but also to illustrate the lifestyle of a prairie community. As well as the life of early pioneers you can also discover the trials of early frontier entrepreneurs; following along on their journey of trading furs for goods and living away from their families.
