It was an typical museum. 3 floors of things to see but not a lot on each floor. It was interesting as museums go

We had the place to ourselves. The museum is well organized and not at all cluttered like some historical museums are. Got a good sense of the culture and ethos of the Soo. Did not visit the other sister museums...I expect they would have answered some of my questions about the region.

Small but friendly. Well arranged worth a visit. Does not take time but the exhibits are well researched and presented. Worth seeing if you are staying more than overnite.

Lovely old building that was once the main post office. The museum shows the changes from the earliest times pre European times to the modern day. Well researched and all aspects of life covered. A superb glimps of past ages and achievements, as well as how people lived and survived.

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

For those that like trains & beautiful scenery this is an excellent trip. The train departs at 0800 and returns at 5:30 PM. The fall colors were about at it's brightest. 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
