The school in which the museum is housed was built in 1920 and was finally closed in 1963. This school was originally located 20 miles northeast of Prince Albert, and is named after Clayton Smith who was a postmaster. The state of the school now is extremely close to how it was once decorated. It has desks, a library, and many artifacts from school days in early 20th century Saskatchewan.
The museum is operated by the Prince Albert Historical Society, and is open in the summer.
