This museum has a cool selection of historic items displayed in the old post office building. I would recommend visiting this museum. Located on Queen Street in the old downtown section of the Soo. We enjoyed it!

A small but nice museum. I especially enjoyed the native exhibit. We couldn't get up to see the clocktower. Well worth the money and time.

The museum is trying hard to give you the best for your money. My husband and I enjoyed it but we are history and trivia buffs. We actually spent about 90 minutes reading and looking at the exhibits. Worth your time and little money if you like history and trivia.

I came out of this museum feeling like I had a much better sense of the history and current culture of Sault Ste. Marie. The museum is chock full of small exhibits, intelligently organized and nicely annotated.

Great museum with rooms dedicated to a number of subjects as well as a great kids area. Numerous artifacts have been donated and procured to tell the story of the Sault Saint Marie area. Very personable staff and while it is 3 stories it has a large elevator if needed. Very enjoyable experience! Very reasonable entry fees.

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.
