There is a large Japanese exhibit, and local residents have been very generous in contributing to the museum. A... More

nicely "done" museum. They are trying to incorporate all the cultures of the area...promise Hawaiian influence soon! Dioramas of history of the area are spot on! Staff pleasant but could use more knowledge. Staff/volunteers very busy, place spotless. Thank you for providing a lovely museum setting. Don't miss the Japanese garden allow 2 hours

Unexpected surprise, we were very impressed with this museum, very educational about the heritage of the Four Rivers area, and the price of admission was very reasonable. If you are in Ontario do not miss seeing this museum.
