Grand Opening – Thursday, June 15. Free Admission. All welcome.

The Muse is pleased to partner with a number of community organizations which include:

  • Gaagagegiizhigook Childcare Centre and School
  • Gaagagekiizhik School
  • Kenora Catholic District School Board
  • Kenora District Services Board
  • Keewatin Patricia District School Board
  • Ne-Chee Friendship Centre
  • Kenora Association for Community Living 

in a celebration of the thinkings and wonderings of our community’s youngest citizens. 

Educators and their students ventured outside to discover what captured the children’s imaginations. The result of their wilderness experiences will be presented in their exhibition. 

This is the second iteration of this project, the first being presented last year. It was an incredible presentation of artistic expression, that included science, design, colour, and wonderful imagination. 

Everyone is welcome to visit!

Did you know?

The Burley Mine was a single shaft gold mine that was sunk into a very small rock outcrop on the lake.  To stabilize the entrance the owners built cribbing around the rock.  The small, perfectly square island remains there to this day.
