The museum traces the history of the area from the lumbering and trapping days through the discovery of uranium mining, milling, and uses of uranium. It races the development of area mines, mine rescue and the development of the thriving modern community of Elliot Lake. It is also the home of the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, which features the portraits and biographies of these who have made major contributions to the Canadian Mining Industry.
These doors once graced the main entrance to the Administration Building of the Elliot Lake Denison Mine, the world's largest uranium producing facility of its time. Graciously donated to the City of Elliot Lake, the doors are now a proud part of the Nuclear and Mining Museum display. The intricate design incorporates abstract impressions of atoms, machinery and equipment reminiscent of our mining era. On their own, each door is a masterpiece; in combination they are a unique work of art.
Facilities: Gift Shop, washrooms, wheelchair accessible. Campground nearby.
