The Franklin Expedition travelling display was on when we visited. This is a very informative story about the northern explorers. On the second floor was the museum about the Fort Frances area and again it was very well laid out and presented.

Definitely worth the $4.00. Also gives you a code for the lookout tower. Be sure to go up the stairs to the second floor.
