    We've lived in Hamilton since 2007, and while our kids have been to Dundurn Castle on school field trips, we never visited until this past December.

    My siblings and their families were in town over the holidays, and we chose this over the Royal Botanical Gardens for a visit.

    We were pleasantly surprised by how great the experience was. Our tour guide was dressed in period clothing, and was engaging and knowledgeable.

    I would suggest visiting on a misty, overcast day - somehow, it added to the charm, and made it feel as though we'd stepped back in time.

    Visited on a coolish June Monday afternoon. We enjoyed walking through time with the buildings that come from different eras, but sadly no buildings were open to visitors. But we still spent more than two hours there, including some walking on trails outside the village center.

    Don't expect the full coverage of steam technology from trains to steamboats. This is a museum of one thing, but that thing is displayed nicely. It is a former pump house of the early city's watermain. You can see the moving parts in action (of course, not coal- but electrically powered these days).

    Love the location and listen to entertainment put on by the town for free. Wonderful evenings out. Meet your friends and neighbours just when you thought it was your idea to invite them next time. Wonderful loud secret.
