This place has inside and outside attractions , but the buildings outside, showing our dwellings from years back to present day is a must , the people that volunteer are amazing

We spent an afternoon at the museum. It was very interesting to see the history of people living in the area and its economy over time through actual buildings, furniture, and various artifacts from times gone by.

A wonderful little museum with some great exhibits. They also have a pioneer village with host/hostesses who were very interactive and informative. Very enjoyable experience and all for a great price. My family loved it!

Excellent museum with a wonderful pioneer village with host/hostesses. Great theatre and films. Good variety of exhibits, currently one has Lego castles. Friendly staff. Low admission fees. Can easily spend 3-4 hours indoors and outdoors.

It was well worth going to this museum. Interesting local history, and they had a Lego exhibit on when we went. The only thing I didn't realize was that the attached pioneer village is not open until later in June.

When we went to the museum they had the Tutankhamun exhibit. A great display of replica Egyptian artifacts. Unfortunately the heritage village was closed for the season when we were there. If wanting to see their present exhibit and the heritage village go before Labour...More
