This is a lovely memorial to the mining industry in Elliot Lake. For the miners and their families it's like a trip down memory lane and an education for anyone not associated with the uranium mining here in Elliot Lake.

An enjoyable education of how the town grew up around the uranium mining industry. The exhibits show the Elliot Lake region's brief history of the uranium mining industry in northern Ontario.
