The Seven Oaks House Museum is one of the oldest surviving residences in Manitoba and one of a handful of log buildings remaining in the province. It was built between 1851 to 1853.

The house was owned by one family, the Inksters, until 1952 when it was turned over to the city to be used as a park and museum. The museum depicts life during the Red River Settlement in the 19th century. It is furnished with Inkster family belongings and other period pieces.

Mary, the youngest of the Inksters' nine children, lived at Seven Oaks until her death in 1912. The house was then turned over to the City of Winnipeg to be used as a park. The city of West Kildonan became the owners in 1952 and soon started the restoration, which resulted in the Seven Oaks Museum.

The museum is open from the May long weekend through to Labour Day. During this time it is open 7 days per week, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
