Our tiny town has an excellent museum and with it comes a variety of advertised events. I am new to Fort Frances (4 1/2 yrs) and have enjoyed quite a few museums over a life time.....I was very impressed with the curator's hard work. Very educational...and well documented history of the area!!! Has an elevator 😃 Thank you👍👏

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.

This is a great community asset although its size limits the type and size of exhibits that can be offered. Great source of information on local and area history and they offering great learning opportunities throughout the year especially for younger people. This museum is well worth visiting if you want to catch a glimpse of the past which dates... More
