Small exhibit but great information about the mining town and how it grew to be. Nice gift shop to explore. There was a small art class going on for young kids and it seemed well attended and interactive.

There wasn't much local history. Nothing for kids to see let alone adults. The old museum was so much better. All in all, boring!

Very nice museum, with two exhibition areas and an excellent gift shop! The current exhibition (Queen Elizabeth in Canada) leaves soon, but they always have interesting exhibitions. Nice staff members, too!

The Art Gallery had some pretty interesting pieces, especially some re-cycled works. The Museum shows the history of Timmins well. AND there's a good performance space for readings. We liked the Gift Shop which would be a great place to shop for more unusual and...More
