Museum looking for input on new exhibit

With research underway and ideas for a new exhibit beginning to develop, the Fort Frances Museum is seeking feedback from residents and visitors to the area about what themes and artifacts they want to see included in it.
So starting this week, a new survey is being made available on the museum’s website at as well as various locations around town, including the museum, library, Memorial Sports Centre, the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship site, and the Clover Valley Farmers’ Market.
Feedback provided by the community and visitors through the survey will help identify key areas of interest. By gaining understanding of what the museum visitor would like to see ensures the exhibit’s importance and future success.
Results from this survey will be used to assess key themes to be highlighted and the methods through which the information will be presented throughout the exhibit.
Drop off your completed survey no later than Friday, Aug. 18 at 334 Scott St. (the temporary location of the museum). It’s open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Your participation in this stage of the exhibit’s development is greatly appreciated. To show our gratitude, a draw will be held for all those who participate for a copy of “Fort Frances: The Story of a Town and Its People.”
The draw will take place Friday, Aug. 25. A drop box for entries is located inside the museum.
Interpretive development intern Emily Carr recently was hired to prepare a new exhibit for the museum when it re-opens next year.
Anyone with questions or concerns about the survey can call Carr at 274-7891 or e-mail her at
