Spent over an hour in the museum, particularly in the lower level with it's magnificent display of the 1st World War in the trenches. The other displays were also well worth the visit, they even have a wonderful area for children to explore science, mechanics, etc.

Fantastic museum packed with lots to see and do. The building is gorgeous. Staff are helpful and well-informed. We wish we had been able to spend more time. We shall definitely return here when we next visit the area.

What to do on a rainy Friday? Take the kids to this museum. They spent over an hour playing with Lego, then they explored the museum. The loved the school house and cottage. I liked the old store and reading about what everyday objects used to cost. It really is an interesting place to learn about the history of the area. We don't think about the first settlers, and what life was like all those years ago. The museum is reasonably priced and you can spend hours here.

One rainy afternoon we wandered into the museum. We were quite surprised to see all that they had on display. The log cabin and school house were amazing. To see that they are able to have that piece of history on their grounds is wonderful.

They have really made a great effort to re-energize this museum to engage the kids. Before you go look for a brochure of their activities for the week (or give them a call) as it can change each day. My children's favourite is the lego building days.
