We went in to inquire about some of the local indigenous communities around the island and any sort of activity’s we could do in the area, the lady who was working there had a very thick accent and had no idea what she was talking about. I asked about Wiikwemkoong and she basically told us she doesn’t know and really didn’t seem to care at all, she then kept pestering us about taking a tour of “her” museum which really put us off, luckily there was a younger man in the office who overheard our dreadful conversation and gave us the correct information we were requesting, the woman seemed very angry at this and left in a huff, I will not be going back to this sad excuse for a museum as long as she is there. Safe to say she doesn’t care about visitors at all.

Stopped here with my grandmother who grew up on a farm. She and I were very impressed about the amount of farm equipment and pioneer artifacts on display. It was interesting to see the old equipment, and the actual museum is an old pioneer house, so the atmosphere of the museum is perfectly fitting. Personally, I would go to see the museum if you have time to spend there, you have to take time to see everything.

Our day of museum visits. I guess by the other reviews we hit a bad day. The only way to see this was by a guided tour. But the guide was on lunch. It was ten to twelve and it would be another two hours before we could have a tour. No essence of I'm sorry. Not a whiff of interest in visitors by the staff on duty who didn't seem to have anything else to occupy them.

Really can't call it a welcome centre.

There is something for everyone at this museum. There is a small tour which is very informative and provides a good historical perspective of the area including birth records. Admission and souvenirs are reasonably priced. When you're finished, slip over to MUMs bakery to get yourself some seriously decadent and delicious treats.

This little tour was very informative and had a few things we had never seen before at a pioneer museum. Souvenirs are reasonably priced, and if you have family from here you just may find them in all of the family trees the have there. Admission is inexpensive as well.

Good family place to visit to continue learning about the Island! This is a place to take your family and, although smaller than some, it makes up for it with more information.
