  • You owe it to yourself to visit this museum. It's a short walk through, depending on your time spent looking at the many mementos of Dorothy's life. She's a fascinating woman. Made her own rootbeer. They still make and sell it using her recipe. Staff here are great.
  • Very amazing space dedicated to rembering Dorothy. The structures were hauled from Knife Lake after her death. Staff is great and this is certainly worth the entry fee. Our kids loved it!
