Really great museum, which was originally a Post Office build in the early 1900s. It contains displays, which show primarily the sporting, shipping and native history of the Soo. A real bonus is the huge photography exhibit on the first floor, so the museum is a must-visit for photography or graphics students or just aficionados. You should be able to... More

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. My favorite "local" part was the third floor, sports. They display the "Greyhounds Hockey" teams. (Greyhounds since they wanted to be fast on the ice!").... More

The rugged Canadian Shield on which the Agawa Canyon sits was formed 2.5 billion years ago some of the oldest rock on earth. As the train slowly winds it's... More

If you love history, or just appreciate seeing old artifacts, you'll most certainly enjoy a visit here. It was especially interesting for me to learn more about my city and the children were given special activities to do for our group tour.

We were soooo disappointed that the Museum was shut on Sunday when we made a weekend visit to Sault Ste Marie. We came from England and drove for 2 days from Toronto to get here, and could not believe that the Museum and Art Gallery were not open on Sundays - when do they think most people will visit???? Not... More

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.

This was a self-guided tour museum with well-organized exhibits of the local history. Wonderful old building with lots of charming effects.
