A rustic log cabin constructed museum situated on the shore of Lac Seul and Highway 105. It features many aspects of our proud history. The main theme of the museum is transportation of the gold rush era in the Red Lake and Woman Lake areas; including the dog sled, horse teams, tractors, various forms of water transportation and the air plane. The museum features freighting and transportation exhibits from the Gold Rush Days of 1926, trapping memorabilia, that includes a scale sized trapper's cabin, which gives you a feel and a look back into the Northern past. As well, the museum has many pictures of the old Gold Pines Mine and the old Townsite. A very nice display of Indian artifacts, fish, and other wildlife is situated in the main building. Learn about the local industries that have come and gone from the displays in the two main buildings. Adjacent to the museum grounds is a beautiful waterfront park where the restored tugboat "The Patricia" proudly stands. This boat played a major role in the transportation of goods during the gold rush days. Picnic tables, washroom facilities and a swimming area are available for public use in the waterfront park. Your trip to Ear Falls Museum promises to be an interesting and entertaining one.
