Enjoyed a concert here.
Feb. 2020
We attended the Benjamin Dakota Rogers concert here last winter; it was the last event we went to prior to COVID-19 lockdowns. Enjoyed every minute of our time spent here.

Fun and little
Dec. 2019
It might need an update in a few places and some better spacing, but this is a fun little museum in the downtown area. Probably better to plan in conjunction with the other museums in town, as it is not so immersive by itself, but serves as a nice followup for people having seen the gallery or the bushplanes.

Definitely worth a visit

Visited this year and last year. Before that it had been over 20 years. Always change things up to keep it interesting. There is so much history in the local area that is so intriguing.

Pleased to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your visit! The Skylight Gallery- a walk-through tour of the Sault's history, is one of our favourites too!

Not much
Sep. 2017 • Couples
I did enjoy the old photos and the hockey history. But there isn't very much to see at this attraction. If you come from the US, be prepared to pay by credit card or Canadian currency, because UD dollars will be accepted only at par.

Happy that you enjoyed our sports memorabilia, as we are indeed a hockey town! Our feature exhibit changes periodically, new sights and items being added frequently. If you are ever back in the Sault, come back to see if anything new catches your eye!
