Friends of Grain Elevators

Over the years we have mounted displays on various aspects of the Thunder Bay grain trade. The displays have engaged and educated hundreds of local, national and international visitors.

Alexander Henry Museum Ship Display

Our most recent display is located on the Alexander Henry Museum Ship. It is currently docked within the Sleeping Giant Parkway and is available to tour through the Lake Superior Circle Tour. The entire museum ship itself includes information on Alexander Henry Ship's rich history and of shipping in the Thunder Bay area and Lake Superior.
