Boaring did not enjoy it at all would not recommend. I am glad we didn't waste gas just to come for it. Only reason we came is cause we were in the area

The whole museum and outdoor site felt very neglected and run down to us. Exhibits inside were dusty and tired looking. One of the longhouses outside was falling apart and had a "No entry Unsafe" sign on it. There were empty sign posts near the main longhouse, and the rest on the trail were all broken and rusty. The outdoor... More

The interior part of the museum was well done but the outdoor part was in ill repair and needed work to make it up to par for visitors.

Nestled in a residential area, if you weren't looking for this site, you wouldn't know that it was there. That being said, it is worth the drive to spend an hour or two in this interesting museum. The indoor exhibits were very well put together and will also be of interest to school aged children. While we were there, two... More

Interesting place to visit. Not a whole lot of 'interactive' stuff for the kids, but they still enjoyed it. Exploring the village itself is fun.

How many people know about the historic remains of an ancient Indian village found inside the boundaries of our own city? Recreation of village life and artifacts are well displayed. Cost is minimal and it is easy to access.

On the surface this small museum doesn't seem to have much going for it. However, if you like archeology and have an interest in local history, and are not intimidated to ask questions about what you are viewing, then this is a great educational opportunity for the whole family. This museum is affiliated with The University of Western Ontario. The... More

Not much. A waste of time really. Live near there and decided to check it out. Reminded me of all the lousy tourist traps in Victoria, BC. I lived there as well. Not worth the time in my estimation.

We went for a Pow-Wow and I was expecting so much more. It sure didn't seem like the real thing, more of a show for the people attending. I need to drive to Six Nations to see a real pow wow. Overall it was ok, seemed very commercialized with lots of stuff for sale. The inside of the museum was... More

Although we had a hard time finding it, we really enjoyed this little museum particularly browsing at all the artifacts uncovered nearby. A big plus was being able to walk around the prehistoric Iroquoian Village which is located outside next to the museum. The small gift shop also had some nice items.
