The manager of the Fort La Reine Museum in Portage says it's a pretty good track record. 

John Bjore looks towards the museum's 40th year of operation -- the 39th officially closes tomorrow. 


The highlight of his season was attracting people from outside Portage, saying it's rewarding to know positive experiences at the museum are being spread through word of mouth. 


Bjore notes the season's revenue is up, but he isn't giving all the credit to the favorable weather.  He also links it to several structural repairs. 


Going forward Bjore wants to focus on creating more local interest.
