In addition to its collection of artifacts, the Museum is the repository for many archival resources including: photographs, maps, journals, correspondence, business records, memoirs, etc. all related to the history of Kenora and area.

Staff is able to provide general information about the archival holdings and are happy to assist researchers. Research requests may be made in person, by phone, letter, or e-mail. Response time to research requests varies based on the extent of the research required, the available resources, and scheduling of staff time.
