About the Museum:

The Lake of the Woods Museum is "one of the coolest little museums in Canada" according to a national magazine, and it has a long and effective history in the city of Kenora (ON). Since its establishment, the multi-award winning Museum has been one of the central pillars of culture in Kenora. When the Museum was established, the collection centred on the artifacts of Captain Frank Edwards, an Indigenous agent in Kenora from 1920 until his death in 1945. Today, the Museum is a dynamic cultural asset in the city of Kenora. The collection numbers in excess of 25,000 artifacts, natural history, minerals, pictorial and archival material, all illustrating the human history of Lake of the Woods and the surrounding area.

The Museum features three levels of permanent exhibit gallery, temporary exhibit displays, self-guided tour book, and an interactive iPad-based mobile tour.
