Our mission is to preserve the past of Canada South for the education and interpretation of present and future generations.

Sitting on 100 Acres, our 25000 square foot Transportation Museum showcases modes of transportation from early wooden wheel wagons all the way to the present day Viper!

Our Heritage Village is a journey back in time to 15 buildings that have been placed here from all over Essex County.

Our tour guides would be happy to take you back in time to learn the treasured history of our area.

Our Village is open Tuesday Through Sunday May 01 - October 31st, and our Museum is open year round for tours.

Great tour guide. Small group is nice so you can ask questions. There is a nice group of unique area related treasures. Free parking. Allow one hour for guided part of the tour. There is also a gift shop and interesting artifacts to view. We only had time to see part of this and will go back in the spring... More

If you like cars and trucks, if you like a walk in the woods, or if you like historical buildings....this interesting collection brings it all to one place. Also worth noting that the diner makes simply the best old-school chololate milkshakes too!

Recently had the opportunity to visit this landmark. We brought along 2 children under the age of 5 to explore with us. They love trucks, cars etc so thought this would make a nice outing after having breakfast in the diner which by the way is a 5+++ for food! The boys loved the old vintage vehicles and the guide...

November 2013 was the last time we came to this wonderful place that is really a jewel in our part of Southwestern Ontario. This time we treated my 97 year old mother to a drive out into the county on this early September and to take in the menu at the 1950's style diner located in the Transportation Museum part... More

We originally went out for lunch at the 50's Diner but ended up taking both tours- Village and Transportation Museum. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Due to previous theft in the area, we were unable to go by ourselves but touring with other people was alright. As all people who work there are volunteers, they were a little... More

The home cooked food is delicious. The car display in the museum is excellent. Thursdays are fun on hot rod night. You can even have an ice cold alcoholic beverage.

We stopped there with our 7 year old and our 10 month old, but the museum has a lot to offer for all ages. The heritage section is a collection of cabins and household items that is set chronologically so that you can see the progression in all aspects of life. The staff was very patient and answered ALL of... More
