    Nice tiny museum with many work tools from the past. Many furs from different animals (fur trading has been the main business for centuries here) Actually if you're low on money I don't know if it's worth the 8$ ticket for such a short visit. The modern part is totally not worth it, fortunately there are some nicer rooms in the original part of the musuem. The staff is really friendly!
