Spent a very pleasant time here. Lots of local history and exhibits, and lots of wandering in nooks and crannies. Only downside is that I couldn't figure out how I was going to sneak out with that genuine birchbark canoe. Need bigger pants...

A very interesting look at life in the 'frontier' thru the eyes of a family home. Some of the items inside from the owners medical/dental practice are eerie. The museum is laid out beautifully and kept very clean. Be sure to have a guide explain...More
