I love going to these small local Museums. This one was well curated and lots of good exhibits. Each floor has a theme and there is a good flow as you move forward in time.

This is filled with a local history of the town, it occupies the site of the old post office. It may not be appreciated by people who are not connected with the town. Recommended to anyone who are into museums or history.

We are new to the Soo and my children wanted to visit this museum to find out more about our new home. They thoroughly enjoyed it, particularly the ship exhibit on the top floor.
