We called in to the museum as we were passing on foot. Spent a couple of hours looking through the various exhibits, interesting information regarding the history of the surrounding area. School and the McMillan House of 1885 were particularly good.

The museum has free admission. All the little tiny buildings were moved from their original location. Kids learned a lot from "seeing" and they are able to touch some stuff. We also went there on Friday afternoon when they had the farmer's market!

Very nice feel to what use to be with a blacksmith working, people marketing their wares including jewellery made with copper, produce, arts and crafts. Had to leave as I was spending too much money! hahaha
