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...More

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.

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.
