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. Local artisan groups often display their work in the Gallery.
