The museum itself was fascinating, the cemetery play was fantastic! The play was engaging for all ages, the kids in the group were entranced by the humour that made the historic information so relatable. Kudos!

The intriguing collection and exhibits reflect the historical impact of the french settlers and "Metis" in the socio-cultural development of Winnipeg and Manitoba. This, "out of the...More
