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.

The Fort Frances Museum is a great place to understand the past experiences of Fort Frances. Filled with items from our past, it's a look at what "came before."

Tea and scones is a treat at the museum. The museum's curator and volunteers work hard to ensure quality exhibits that engage the local population as well as visitors. It's a wonderful place to visit to learn about the area.
