The Dufferin Historical Museum was originally built in 1959. The museum’s purpose is to preserve for prosperity artifacts and records of historical interest which show the ways of life that predecessors of Carmen lived. The museum has early 1900’s furniture, clocks, early wedding dresses, tools, coins, weapons, household items, toys, and a pianola.
As well as the museum, there are two preserved buildings that tourists can visit. One of these buildings is a log house from the 1870s. The second building is the Boyne School No. 21. This building was restored and shows the life of country school children in a one-room schoolhouse. Both of these buildings are Manitoba Designated Heritage buildings.
