Just on the very outskirts of town on the west side of Huron St. I go to the museum at least three times a year. The exhibits are always better than expected and changed regularly. Some are on permanent display though such as the fantastic well preserved steam run car and newspaper printing press. Looking forward to the cemetery exhibit... More

We went to the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe display. It was one of the best displays I have ever seen. Well done.

The museum continues to expand its facilities and exhibits. Partnerships with other institutions such as the Anne Frank Museum in the Netherland and the Stratford Festival Theatre, have enriched the programs and events being offered. And it sounds like the upcoming exhibits for Canada 150 will make our membership totally worthwhile.

My son and I went when they had The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Exhibit - And it was totally awesome! We got to try on costumes, and sit in thrones, and wear crowns. It was pretty cool for my son. I enjoy our rich Canadian army/military history, and was a little disappointed they didn't have a bigger exhibit... More

We were very impressed with the displays and historical information. A must if you're in the area. The Anne Frank display a year ago was very moving but also very informative. We followed our visit with an afternoon at the play at the Avon Theatre

Located a few km outside of Stratford this museum is worth a stop. Two exhibits of interest- historical costumes from Stratford Festival and several rooms devoted to the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Having taught this move to grade 5 and 6 students this would be an excellent addition to the novel study. Congratulations to the curators for their... More

The regular exhibitions were pretty limited but suitable for families. The art quilt show we saw, however, was better than average.

With time on our hands before an afternoon matinee we decided to visit the museum specifically to see the Festival Archives Exhibition: To the Vistor, the Spoils. On display were elaborate costumes from earlier performances of Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V. The exhibit that caught our eye was “My Corner of the World” an art quilt exhibit. These... More

The quilt display with quilts from around the world in the theme 'around our place' demonstrated a wide variety of talents and places. Staff were helpful. Festival costume and Lion, Witch and Wardrobe displays were well worth viewing..

Displays of militia items and history of the Perth Regiment. Costumes from Festival Theatre productions and a Canadian and International Quilt display. Also many interesting items and displays from our area's past. Featured was an exhibit from TheLion ,The Witch and The Wardrobe which was interactive. Always refreshing to visit and experience the arrival of new exhibits as well.
