This site's collection focuses on the Kapuskasing region from 1914 to the present. The museum is housed in two Canadian National Railway coaches, an engine and a caboose. There is a permanent exhibit on Kapuskasing's  World War I internment camp, and new exhibits every season on various aspects of Kapuskasing. Working HO-gauge and N-gauge railway models are sure to delight young and older visitors alike.

Pioneer life in Northern Ontario is on permanent display. Local artist Maurice Gaudreault (deceased 2001) produced a 37-piece clay sculpture collection showing the daily struggles and hopes of pioneers.
