Where are we going today?

Who knew that Saskatchewan had a rich history in mobsters, rum-running, prohibition, and bootleggers! Fascinating!

The Tunnels Of Moose Jaw were originally built in the early 1900s to hide Chinese immigrants, but were never used.

However, come the roaring 20's and the time of Al Capone and mobsters, they came in handy! Older kids will love exploring these amazing tunnels, with characters straight out of a movie telling the amazing history to bring it all to life.

The Tunnels Of Moose Jaw have two fascinating and historical guided walking tours that the whole family can experience.

The "Passage of Fortune" is the tour where you can become immersed about early Chinese immigration that occurred in Canada.

The second tour is the "Chicago Connection" which is where the gangsters come to life!

All families who visit become part of the experience. You will delve deep under the streets of Moose Jaw, and really re-live it! Each tour last for 50 minutes and really cool animatronic characters, a fascinating media presentation, and characters will take you round the tunnels and really allow kids to become enthralled in the past!

Don’t get caught now, ya hear!

    More fun than historic. It's entertaining. Well done quality of acting and story, and tunnels are decorated in detail with pieces from the times of Al Capone.

    I dont believe the tunnels are fake in any way. I have lived here 20 years myself and when I was young, they didn't know where they were. Remember the big fire on river St in the middle of winter a few years back that revealed a lot of the new tunnels.

    Very fun tour. Stories are speculative, but based on very real history of the region. Makes you feel just a little bit about what the history was about. Chinese tour is based on some of the very difficult history that Chinese immigrants experienced. Well-presented. Courteous staff.
