I recently attended the museum while showing some of my out of town relatives our City of Timmins. The museum was meant to be one of the highlights, however the minuscule mining exhibit, along with a "silent movie" running on a loop did not measure up to even the lowest expectations. The Art display was good, however there were no... More

This is a small town museum which has relocated to a new building. The displays change on an almost monthly basis. There are also various sessions (crafts, etc.) offered for a pretty reasonable price. Some are events for children and others target adults. The curator is particularly knowledgeable about the area, but all staff are quite polite and helpful. Given... More

I went there expecting to learn something about Timmins and its history, and probably about its raison d'etre, mining. Nothing at all! And nothing about its famous daughter Shania Twain. A nice clean well run place full of nothing. They had a temporary exhibition of Egyptian artifacts, but that is all. Very disappointing.

We are sorry you had such a disappointing experience at our museum. Unfortunately, you visited us during a time of transition. Our local history gallery exhibits change a couple times a year and we were in the process of installing the next local exhibit which is now open and does feature our mining history. Our other gallery is the National... More

Excellent! They have local artist works displayed at all times. They bring in travelling exhibits which are good. They have unique gifts in their gift shop area.

I went for the annual book sale in November and got to see the new museum. This place is classy! Very tastefully decorated and welcoming. There is a gift shop at the entrance. This place is right across the street from the library which is another beautiful building in Timmins. The exhibits were not accessible because of the sale so... More
