The small museum element had a cinema which was an absolute must. So informative which then leads you into taking the walk which again adds another dimension to your understanding of how tough and grim life must have been.

Visiting the Algonquin Logging Museum was really interesting. It is extremely well done. You view a film then enter a doorway that takes you back in time. There is a manageable walk, with a special provided wheelchair if needed, to see cabins used for sleeping...More

A very nice walk, not too difficult. The walk starts with a video, and then progresses through an old logging area. There are well-explained exhibits all along the way.
