This little three story museum is stuffed with local history fairly well displayed. It was really hot on the third floor - not sure if it was because it was a Saturday. Nice dinosaur replica on second floor.

3 floors of Thunder Bay history and interactive exhibits. Free parking w/ a minimal entrance fee. They were working on a new exhibit when we were there but the promise of the polar bear exhibit looks good and very kid friendly.

I take my class there every year and they are so good and patient with the kids. They have 1h upstairs were they watch a movie and learn and then they have time to explore the museum. The ladies working there are really awesome.

The high-point of the visit, for me, was the exhibit on the local music scene in Thunder Bay. The military exhibits were great as well.
