The Manitoba government along with Tourism Manitoba has designated the Flin Flon Station Museum a new Star Attraction. The Chair of the Museum Board Tom Heine says the Board is really pleased as they have been trying for about five years to achieve that designation. He explains essentially its recognition by Travel Manitoba that they are an attraction worth seeing so it basically forces them to not up their game but to maintain the Museum as an attraction that tourists are wanting to come to see.
The Star Attractions program provides access to highway directional signage, ensures marketing support and highlights the attraction in its annual Inspiration Guide, online and in various marketing programs. There are now 63 Star Attractions in Manitoba
