Located at the entrance to the museum are the mill stones of Louis Riel Sr. The museum is housed in the oldest building in Manitoba, and is also the largest building constructed of oak logs in North America. Originally built for the Grey Nuns, this structure has served as a convent, school, hospital and a senior citizens home.
The museum has on display, among other things, a Metis hunters camp. There is also a section which is dedicated to Louis Riel Jr.
The museum is located at 494 av. Tache.
