The Sukanen Ship Museum is a must-visit tourist destination. Located 13 km south of Moose Jaw on Hwy #2 the Sukanen Ship Museum will take you back in time to simpler days and tells the story of Tom Sukenan, a Finnish farmer who had a dream of returning home on the ship he built in the middle of the Prairies.

Tom Sukanens body was exhumed from its grave in North Battleford, then re-interred next to his dream ship in 1976. In order to do burials a piece of ground needed to be designated as a cemetery, and to do that, a church has to be on the same property, thus the tiny white church beside Toms grave at the Sukanen Ship Museum, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
