at the Sir Harry Oakes Chateau




Both Temporary and Permanent Exhibits are displayed at the Museum of Northern History. Temporary exhibits accompanied by artifacts from Kirkland Lake and area bring regional themes together in the Gallery and Music Room exhibition spaces. The Museum's Gallery typically features between 8-10 Art Exhibitions each year from local, regional and international artists. 

      Art Exhibit 2010


The Museum of Northern History occasionally features travelling exhibits throughout the year. In 2012, exhibits created by the Archives of Ontario were brought on display at the Museum, featuring displays of common Ontario themes supplemented by artifacts from the museum's collection. Theatres, agriculture and tourism were the themes explored. Check out the Archives of Ontario website at



Permanent exhibits housed within the Chateau represent North Eastern Ontario geographically, culturally and economically. See exhibits on the prosperous Kirkland Lake Gold Camp, Algonquin Regiment Military, the agricultural and logging industry, local businesses, the pioneers of Kirkland Lake and local heroes.
