Museum offering summer activities

The Fort Frances Museum will be presenting a summer of heritage tours and activities throughout the town as we connect with the community. Join us on Thursdays from 2:30-4 p.m. or 6-7:30 p.m. to discover more about Fort Frances and the area’s heritage. Tomorrow (July 6), mermaids will be explored through story and art. Other myths and magic of the lake, including the mishipishu, will be included. Make your own work of art using mermaid imagery and Rainy Lake magic.
Join us at the Sorting Gap Marina gazebo from 2:30-4 p.m. for “Mermaid Magic.” Then at 7 p.m., you can join us at the bog as the official opening of the Cranberry Peatlands interpretive trail. It is located at the far end of Whitmore Road in Crozier via Highway 611 South. On July 13, we invite you to be a “On Your Own Tourist in Town.” Stop by the Sorting Gap Marina gazebo from 2:30-4 p.m. or 6-7:30 p.m. to pick up a scavenger hunt and return it for a prize.
And on Thursday, July 27, we join in the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship fun with a “bass craft” for you to make and take home.
Located in “Daytime Land,” you can make a unique souvenir from 1-3 p.m. that Thursday through Saturday.
The Fort Frances Museum currently is relocated to 334 Scott St. as museum renovation is completed in Phase I of the heritage tourism project. The museum off-site location is open from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Monday to Saturday. The museum also will be setting up at the Clover Valley Farmers’ Market.
Stop by to see what is happening. We invite you to drop in to pick up your “Discover Fort Frances” package.
