The site was home to the North West Company in the early 1800s. You are transported back to the period and can view 46 reconstructed buildings on 25 acres of land and learn from period interpreters what life was like in a trading post There are also planned activities throughout the day and we were able to sample homemade bread in the bakery. Additionally there's a visitor center, free wi-fi and virtual shows of the buildings.

# min. off Hwy 61 best Gouda cheese anywhere Freshness and flavor unsurpassed I love cheese and eat too much of it. We buy all our curds and ridiculous variety of Gouda. They ship world wide and are busy doing that and that says it all. 10/10 I would give them 11 if it were possible.We are proud of this Thunder Bay gem.

Terry Fox Monument

Reviewed By SnowbirdOntario

The Terry Fox Monument is a beautiful tribute to a real Canadian hero. He continues to be an inspiration to generations of Canadians. As September marks the annual Terry Fox runs throughout Canada and the world for Cancer Research, it was especially fitting that we dropped by the monument on our visit to Thunder Bay. There was a lot of care and attention given here, even to the roadway into the monument area. It affords an excellent view of Thunder Bay and Lake Superior beyond. The monument itself is very special and the plaque detailing the Terry Fox story is important for all to read.

The Blue Point Amethyst Mine

Reviewed By Nerm58 - Calgary, Canada

I spent 3 hours at this mine and wish I'd spent more time there. ALL the praise for this mine is true. The many types of beautiful amethyst here are fairly easy to find and don't require much washing. There are also lots of great, professionally cleaned samples for sale at reasonable prices. The owner is a very accomodating, generous, and likeable gentleman. I highly recommend this experience to people of all ages.

Diamond Willow Amethyst Mine

Reviewed By patrickirl123 - Limerick, Ireland

The staff were super friendly and helpful. The road was being worked on and the staff were very helpful. Once they showed us where to go we got to play in the piles of rock. There was a lot of pieces of amethyst and the ground just glittered. We got loads of amethyst for a really low price. The pieces for sale are Hugh quality and reasonably priced

We specifically came up to Thunder Bay, Ontario for the Amethyst Mine Panorama. It is a working amethyst mine and with admission, they will take you on a short tour that explains how the mine came to be and the history of it. You then get a pail and digging instrument and off you go to collect amethyst rocks. The area is separate from the mining area so it is safe, even for little ones. There is amethyst of various sizes laying all over the ground, you don’t even have to dig for it (but you can dig if you want????). You find the stones and rocks that you like, put them in the pail and when you’re done, you wash and scrub them with a brush. You decide which ones you want to keep, place them in a bag that’s provided and go back to the office. They weigh them for you and charge by the pound. It is so reasonable and that is part of what makes it so fun! They have heavier pieces already lined up for sale if you don’t want to go out into the field. There is also polished stones and jewelry. It is just north of Thunder Bay in the town of Shuniah, Ontario. It is off the highway, just follow the signs. WELL WORTH IT!
