Small exhibit but great information about the mining town and how it grew to be. Nice gift shop to explore. There was a small art class going on for young kids and it seemed well attended and interactive.

There wasn't much local history. Nothing for kids to see let alone adults. The old museum was so much better. All in all, boring!

Small museum that highlights some of the history of the area in addition to presenting special exhibits. Art exhibits, graphics exhibits and exhibits from other areas of the world have graced the museum walls. Small gift shop attached. Located near the main business section, it is convenient to downtown shops and restaurants.

Very nice museum, with two exhibition areas and an excellent gift shop! The current exhibition (Queen Elizabeth in Canada) leaves soon, but they always have interesting exhibitions. Nice staff members, too!

although it's a pretty facility with nice items to buy, the woman behind the desk lost a big sale due to her rudeness. She was an older woman with an attitude, and couldn't be bothered to help me with a purchase I wanted to make. She acted annoyed & had an air of being " better than " as she... More

The Art Gallery had some pretty interesting pieces, especially some re-cycled works. The Museum shows the history of Timmins well. AND there's a good performance space for readings. We liked the Gift Shop which would be a great place to shop for more unusual and local gifts.

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
