Inexpensive. They have a small display dedicated to Harper Lee. There also is a large display dedicated to Justin Bieber, a Stratford native. A small room also has props on display from the warehouse that can be touched.

the museum is bigger and more educational than expected. if you're nostalgic like us, you'll find it fun here. if you're a little fan of Justin Bieber, you should not miss the visit. there is a special galary made for JB.

There is enough history and information to spend 3-4 hours here at least. The Justin Bieber exhibit was better than expected and the local area history was well done. Thankful for the work put into this, and the price was therefore very reasonable.

I found the film excellent. I thought Id seen it all but it was very informative about her pre-war life, home movies, etc. the exhibit isn't much so it won't take long. lovely little museum.
