Grant's Old Mill Museum is located at 2777 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg Manitoba on the banks of Sturgeon Creek (kiddy corner to Booth Drive).

Our main vision and mission is to educate the public on the operation of a grist mill in the production of flour using a water wheel and millstones all the while presenting the history of milling. We also want to preserve the heritage and story of Manitoba in the era of Cuthbert Grant and the fur trade years of the early to mid-1800’s.

We value integrity, respect for all, our friendly visitors and the environment — and our responsibilities to it.

These are the wonderful people who operate the Grant's Old Mill Museum.
