A piece of history you need to experience! Everything has been recreated to a very fine detail so you can literally go back in time to see what a fur trading post was like in the early 1800's. Your tour guides live their parts as though they were brought to you from that period in time. So many artifacts, pieces of clothing and writings from the time that have survived for us to view and enjoy! You must experience this if you have even the slightest interest in the history of our area!

My family brought me here this past week on my yearly visit to Thunder Bay. I loved every second of this conservatory. With the weather being so awful it was calming and refreshing to view such beauty! I almost forgot I was inside. Staff was very friendly- highly recommend!

It is located 6 or 7 miles South of town, but it is definitely worth a visit. The access is off Gillespie Road and they have ample parking. It is basically a replica heritage town built in a field alongside the highway. All building are spotlessly clean and well maintained. While guided tours are available, we elected to just stroll through the site. Most enjoyable and informative. Definitely worth a visit.
