Learn about the struggle for water on the prairies, climb a beautiful spiral staircase, and take-in a breathtaking aerial view of Humboldt when you come for a tour of the Humboldt Water Tower. Tours are offered on specific days throughout July and August. Tours run approximately every thirty minutes with the last viewing half an hour before closing. Please note that entry to the water tower is by guided tour only. If you would like to arrange a tour outside of operational hours, please contact the Museum. Private bookings must have a minimum of 7 people.
From 1915 until 1977 the Humboldt Water Tower provided water and pressure to the residents of Humboldt. Consisting of an inner steel tank, 20 feet in diameter and 80 feet high, surrounded by a timber housing, the Humboldt Water Tower was one of eleven similar structures standing in Saskatchewan at the time. Now it is one of four that are left in the province, and it is the only one that is accessible to the public.
