Welcome to the Museum of Northern History at the Sir Harry Oakes Chateau. Step through the ornate doors of the Chateau and travel back in time to when gold was king. Witness the hardy life of the early pioneers and their struggles as they forged a community out of the unforgiving wilderness. Explore the inner workings of some of the richest mines in Canadian history. Marvel at the tenacity of Sir Harry Oakes, one of the poorest men to walk into, and one of the richest to walk out of the northern goldfields.
