Highly informative exhibits. Takes a while to read everything and take it all in as the boards are large and detailed in their explanations. Well worth the entry fee. I continue to be impressed by Canada's forward-thinking environmental policies. If you stop at the entrance...More

Must see. The North Cape is gorgeous, and this unexpected venue adds to the trip. Get up close with the giant technology that is renewable wind energy, or walk the glorious shoreline.

Visited many times, but the marsh trail remains a favorite. Perfect hike then finished up with an appetizer and drink at the Wind and Reef restaurant.

The main building was partly closed but it was nice to hike the point, see the light house and view the windmill parts.

Driving up to the North Cape you will see many Wind turbines...it is quite a scene...and given Global Warming, quite encouraging. Wind making electricity! You can see a blade up close on the grounds..and then go to the Museum itself which for $4 (I think)...More
