The museum is housed in an old residence and, though small, very thoughtfully organized. It has a permanent exhibition and other, changing ones.

Although the museum is small, it packs a lot of local history into it. It is worthwhile to visit. The 1812 material has been done really well and is very interesting since it focuses on the local elements.

We really enjoyed this spot, and learning about its great importance in Canadian history. There's a great area for kids in the basement. It's tucked away between hotels and parking lots, but it's well worth seeking it out to spend an hour learning about the War of 1812, bootlegging and more. And it's free!

This is a Museum in early stages of development. What it needs to enhance what it already ahs is some decnt financial support for a City intent on holding property taxes to Zero--it is a great idea and a good little museusm but it needs a City in Suppport.

I am hoping that with the 1812 celebrations this museum will be appreciated more

I loved this museum and visiting it with my family! The kids did crafts downstairs, while my husband and I explore the informative exhibits upstairs. Lots of history in this 200 year old house! Clean bathrooms and air conditioning was just an added bonus :)
