Sukanen's Ship, Stuck in Saskatchewan

Tom Sukanen spent years obsessively building a ship to carry him from his Saskatchewan farm to his birthplace in Finland. He finished, but then died. His odd house-like boat is now part of an outdoor museum, along with his grave.

Soviet rocket?

Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village Museum

There are over 50 buildings of prairie history, starting from the late 1800s to the 1950s, with newer exhibits as well. Lots of cars and tractors. There's even a grain elevator. So many great things to see along with the boat.
