Grandkids LOVED the display

My husband and I took our three grandchildren to see the dinosaur exhibition. Needless to say we could hardly get them out of the museum. Well worth the money and the time.

Took the grandkids to see the dinosaur display. Lots of sounds, colour and a huge display. The outdoor display was also a good display.

What a surprise - an elegant, modern and architecturally beautiful new museum set in a lovely rural area of farmland. The large expanse of land surrounding the museum contains a pioneer village but unfortunately we attended early in the season and the pioneer village had not as yet opened. The museum was outstanding - it seemed to have exhibits and... More

Something for everyone - in the museum are various exhibits from temporary Dino one to fascinating history of liquor in the area; outside, a good range of buildings both in time periods and types with knowledgable guides; and there's what appears to be a nice archive, also a shop with some interesting merchandise. Too bad the cafe is only open... More

It was disappointing. There were not enough volunteers to keep the outdoor exhibit going until late into the summer and my son still was unable to see the exhibit at the end of July because the volunteer didn't come. The Bruce County museum was much more interactive and The Simcoe County museum is open outdoors all year round. I believe... More

We had our grown grandsons with us. We all enjoyed the Dinosaur Exhibit, which will be there until the end of October. A prohibition history of Grey County. Great for the entire family from toddlers to seniors.

Took my kids to see the dinosaur exhibit. Lot more there then I thought. Nice walk through the period village. At the end... A 1930's garage with some nice autos. Kinda neat.

you go out, as if you get as far as the barn its a longish walk back. There are 2 main exhibits inside, looks like one stays regularly. That one is on the prohibition and life in bruce grey over the years - not so interesting for my toddler, but nice for the parents. The other exhibit was on dinosaurs... More
