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

Make sure to reserve at least 3hrs for your summer visit, the exhibits are fantastic and the heritage village is superb! Take the tour, then go explore on your own.

This was a great way to spend an afternoon on a rainy day at the cottage. Very nice/modern museum layout with the area history and a Dino exhibit. The crop circle documentary we watched was fascinating (that was playing when we visited). The old buildings and curators were awesome and our 6 and 9 year old girls loved it despite... More

very interesting exhibit at the museum all about prohibition. the dinoursour exhibit was also a very interesting take on how they lived and what they may have looked like. they also had a pioneer village that was fun to walk through. price was very reasonable at under $20.00 for two adults.

I was pleased with the up to date modern architecture of this facility. The on Going Dinosaur display was fascinating. the size of some of the bones were astonishing. The sound effects added to the display. Families with kids 6 or older would benefit. Younger children could be frightened. Other displays of radio equipment and printing equipment were very well...

We went there for some information, Service was not the greatest, not very friendly. The museum itself was worth it to visit, but as I wrote service the unfriendly and it sticks with you the whole visit.
