Other favourite attractions include the Heritage North Museum where you will be introduced to the Aboriginal peoples of Northern Manitoba, and the surveyors, fur traders and mining families who have made this land their home. The natural history of the area is illustrated by a geology exhibit as well as a Boreal Forest diorama.
The Museum consists of two log structures. On display in the main building are a variety of mounted animals native to the area, assorted Thompson artifacts, traveling exhibits that are changed monthly, and a Boreal forest diorama which includes an authentic caribou hide tipi, a wooly mammoth tusk and fossils. The second building is dedicated to Inco and mining related artifacts.
