  • Finished our long weekend off here with the family. We had a blast going through the village and the museum. The price is great. The kids loved it and I had fun. I was very impressed that they had stuff to keep the kids busy, eye spy games and toys, through out the museum. Would recommend this place to others.
  • If you're visiting Canada & Ontario for the first time this museum should be included on your 'bucket list'. Having visited here I fell I now have a full & proper understanding of how life was for those early settlers from many many different countries who first arrived years ago. You will learn so much about how Canada has been built up on many years of migration. Well worth a visit. Suitable for young children.
