Lots of historic buildings are preserved here. Even the train engines and platforms. Very peaceful - can easily spend 1-2 hours learning about history of the place! Entry is pretty reasonable - $6. Other exhibits inside the building are very nice as well...

Very well presented, for a small town Museum is very well done. Our community has its annual summer picnic on the grounds every year. Wash room facilities are top notch. I've been told that Actors Haden Christiensen and Rachel Bilson who live in Uxbridge...the next town over has vistied but I can't confirm this.

I think that this is a special place that needs to be preserved especially given all of the development that continues to take place around it. They have many special events and the summer camp is a popular place for your children. The village is well taken care of and great staff are very helpful and full of information. Great... More

Nice little museum in Markham. Our kids, age 7 and 4 enjoyed the small museum and the crafts were excellent for the kids. It was March break and they had a theme each day and the crafts related to the theme. The our door areas would be great in the summer but it was a bit too muddy and messy... More

The 25-acre Museum site offers: exhibits, school programs, public programs and events, private event venues and research facilities. There is an old CNR Business Car used by Prime Ministers, plus a Station and CPR... More

I've leaved down the road from the museum for years and only recently visited. I was pleasantly surprised. Admission was inexpensive and they gave us a personal guide to walk us around. Some of the building where opened for us and it was neat to see. This place has the potential to be like Black Creek Pioneer Village. I'm sure... More
