The cashier was very helpful explaining how the exhibits were laid out. Handicap friendly with ramps, handicap doors, on site wheel chairs and elevators. Lots of hands on exhibits for the little ones and children at heart! We visited in winter but spring promises lots of things to access outside and places for picnics. We can’t wait to return with our grandkids!

This is THE small town museum that other organizations should aspire to build (are you listening Owen Sound?). The First World War displays are excellent, and should be on the must see list of every Grade 10 History class within an hour's drive.

Thank you very much for your review. Our exhibit design goals are to be engaging and interactive, along with educational but shhh don't tell the kids that!

I have been to a number of events held at the museum - they do a great job providing interesting activities. The events I have attended include local wine tasting and a talk about shipwrecks.

I'm really sorry to have missed the recent talk on bootleggers because it was full .

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.
