  • 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!
  • It's interesting when I was there they had a native Indian demonstrations
  • A nice museum which preserves the older style of museum display techniques. Excellent collection of native and 1835+ fur trade artifacts.
  • Great place to learn about the history of past culture and the surrounding area.
  • Awesome!!
