Points of Interest

Heritage North Museum

Located next to the Thompson General Hospital, the Heritage North Museum chronicles the history of Thompson as a community, from the trappers that harvested the land before the discovery of nickel deposits in the area to the Hub of the North that it is today. The Museum also periodically showcases works from local artists in its gallery, and has a wide selection of unique northern gifts and souvenirs from craftspeople across the region.

Pisew Falls Provincial Park

Located 50 minutes south of Thompson on Highway 6, Pisew Falls Provincial Park provides year-round boardwalk access to Pisew Falls and the Rotary Bridge, connecting hikers to both sides of the falls. For more information, click here.

Paint Lake Provincial Park

Located 30 minutes south of Thompson, Paint Lake Provincial Park is Thompson’s primary outdoor playground. Hike or snowshoe on the frozen lake on any number of XC ski and winter hiking trails, before warming up with a hot drink and a meal at the Paint Lake Marina! For more information, click here.  

Spirit Way

Organized and established by volunteers, Spirit Way is an interpretive trail that begins on Thompson’s Millenium Trail and continues along one of its primary roadways, Mystery Lake Road, beginning at the Heritage North Museum and ending near the Miles Hart Bridge, at the Tribute to Northern Aviation, with several interpretive signs along the way. For more information, click here.

Wolf Mural

Visible from a mile away, this 10-story mural is in full display while driving south down Mystery Lake Road. The mural is a replica of Robert Bateman’s “Wolf Sketch” painting, and was enlarged and painted by award-winning muralist Charles Johnston.

Tribute to Northern Aviation

Constructed by volunteers and erected in Lions Club Park on the 100th Anniversary of Canadian Aviation, the tribute features the restored frame of a 1946 Norseman Mark V floatplane, with information on the history of flight in northern Manitoba.

Millenium Trail

The 11-kilometer Thompson Millenium Trail is cleared throughout the winter, and offers an easy way to immerse yourself in Thompson’s boreal forest while exploring the many neighbourhoods of the city. The trail is suitable for walking and cross-country skiing. A map of the trail can be found here.
