Fascinating

The rock house was definitely a mansion for its time. I'm sure visiting guests were in awe as we were during our visit. The collection of furnishings really set the mood.

This is quite an interesting museum which puts a lot of effort into relaying the history of 2 very important people in the history of this beautiful city. It is well worth a visit!

This quaint little two-building museum is absolutely dripping with history. The multimedia/video presentation was very cool and quite interesting. The presentation of both Ermatinger and Clergue as human beings with some failings who were nevertheless great contributors to the area was quite refreshing.

The video of about 20 minutes is alone worth the price of admission. It may be hard for some to believe but the founding and development of Sault Ste., Marie is loaded with politics and geopolitics, and a small number of entrepreneurial characters who caused us no end of head-shaking, in part because some of them were scoundrels, others scalawags,...

The room with information about the War of 1812 in the Sault area was very informative and interactive - great for kids. The movie was really good and gave a good background on the businessmen who built... More

Facinating look at the early Canadian European settlement in Sault Ste.Marie. All beautifully presented with good discriptions and costumed guides demonstrating life in those times. (Not sure the guides are there off season) Good gift shop though the claim that merchandise was Canadian made was only true for some of the items. The gardens are interesting but it was raining...

We had a great time and the staff are absolutely wonderful, especially our tour guide, Brandon, he took us through both buildings and made the place come alive. We learned so much about the area, both past... More
