WHY TO VISIT: 2 Good Reasons 1. The museum's exhibits are quirky and eclectic, designed to appeal to many different interests. Just walk through, stop to look at whatever strikes your fancy, and, almost without trying, you will discover for yourself the history of the people and the place: what makes "Kap" tick. It's an interesting place, with an intriguing... More

The clay statues telling the story of early days in the town were wonderful, as were the two working model train sets. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance & the hours. The entrance is at the front of the caboose of the train that is parked outside the station. The tourist info centre is also in the... More

This was a wonderful tribute to Old Kap. They are lucky to have Julie Latimer in charge. We had a lovely visit with her and her staff and were amazed at the beautifully arranged, informative displays.

The museum offers a complete history of the town of Kapuskasing. Including the WW1 pow camps, military and police history along with several period displays and so much more. As well as a huge fully operational model train display. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

We stopped here on our trip around Ontario. We hadn't planned on checking out the museum but we stopped at the tourist info booth to check out the monument out front and ended up going through the museum that's at the same place. It's free by donation but we spent a fair bit of money in the gift store so... More

This is a small, but very well done museum illustrating the history of Kapuskasing with emphasis on the railroad. It is safe to say that Kapuskasing would not exist if not for the railroad so this is appropriate. It also has a very nice collection of works by Maurice Gaudreault, a local clay sculptor. It is well worth the visit.
