There are some interesting things to see especially upstairs. Not a large display. Lots of space with very little in it.

This one hundred year old school house, now holds the memories, artifacts and history of the Town of Fort Frances. You won't be disappointed if you are looking for something to do. Access to the Hallet and Tower along the riverfront are included in your fee. Both other locations are also worth the visit. Walking from the museum down to... More

We drove over to Ft. Frances for the day from International Falls without any particular plan of action. We popped into this museum on a whim, and were SO glad we did! This small museum crams an incredible number of exhibits and artifacts into a comparatively small space and provides a wonderful glimpse into the history of the entire area... More

We popped in for a quick view of the Noden Causeway exhibit but did not visit the entire museum. The exhibit was well done - Museum offers open washrooms for those roaming downtown and a cool place to take a break.

Reminds us of the participation of local residents in the past two world wars and their sacrifices. Faces old and new. Faces never met and faces familair.

Interesting small museum in Fort Frances. I our way to USA we stopped to visit that museum. We saw an interesting porcelaine exihibits, a kind of historical story. On high floor a collection of interesting pieces telling about the people and place among the history. Even we did not stay too much time we have pleasant memories about we saw.

Great source of information on local and area history and they offering great learning opportunities throughout the year especially for younger people.

The collection is fairly small but covers al the local history from the native tribes - lovely samples of beadwork and native dress - to the forestry and mining operations. For those seeking family history, they also house some geneology archives. It takes less than an hour to see everything. They offer free postcards depicting the local area and have... More

The museum is a small two story building on Scott Street ( Main Street) Fort Frances. It contains a series of exhibitions that portray the towns history and the roots of the forest industry. In the summer months visitors can also tour a logging boat and fire tower that are on the waterfront.
