Thank you! We are working hard to put on more special events in the future. Despite being a museum, we like to keep it new and exciting!

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!

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!

We toured this museum in about 90 minutes but could have spent more time reading and inspecting all the exhibits. Exhibits of interest to us were primarily on the 2nd and 3rd floor. There's a 1948 snowmobile, astonishing maps of Great Lakes shipwrecks (so many!),...More
