The Northern Gateway Museum is closed for the season starting tomorrow. The Museum’s Board Chair Penny Morisette says it was a great summer with people coming in to see the early history of the Amisk Lake area with a lot of interest in Discovery Day where this year they saw an increase in guests which in part could be credited to the debut of the film The Peddlers. She says a good portion of the film was Harry Moody explaining how some of the discoveries on Amisk Lake came about from the oral history shared by First Nations people around the Amisk Lake area. She says their guest book includes visitors from Calgary, New Brunswick, Southern Ontario and the U.S.
Morisette adds they will have some new displays ready for next summer. She adds if anyone is still interested in the museum they can contact her at 306-362-2024 or other contacts listed on the door of the museum to arrange a visit.
