  • Fantastic museum. Very well laid out, and interesting exhibits. Much larger than I expected, so be prepared to take breaks and spend a while there. We were two adults and a 10 year old, and all of us were entertained. Highlights were the taxidermy cupboard and the room dedicated to the great storm of 1913 (a temporary exhibit, I gather.)
  • Beautiful heritage site. Lots to look at and even the kids had fun. I liked how there were quite a few different themed rooms such as a movie theater, an old town set up, living quarters from the past and more. I would reccomend seeing the jail as well as the museum. Great way to spend the afternoon.
