Our group of 12 couples driving their hobby cars enjoyed this museum and pioneer village, the volunteer who guided our tour was very knowledgeable of the area, it's history and obviously loved sharing the information. Well worth the small price of admission - allow a couple hours for both tours which are included in the one price.

We didn't have really high expectations when we visited this facility and we were pleasantly surprised. The tour of the various heritage buildings was a bit rushed...I certainly could have spent a lot more time taking photos of the numerous display items inside. The auto museum had a decent selection of well maintained vintage cars which was very enjoyable to... More

This is a great place to visit, they have knowledgeable guides to take you on tour of the displays. There is a great little Diner on the premises. On certain days there is a large flea market at the rear. This establishment is staffed by volunteers and they have had their provincial funding cut off, so visit and give them... More

The Canadian Transportation museum is a great place to take the grandchildren and point out all the historical vehicles to them. The village is also a way to show them how the school room looked 60 years ago.

We had always been aware of this museum but somehow never got to visit it. When we did - what a pleasant surprise. Once inside the reception area one was immediately surrounded with an inviting interior filled with interesting automotive related items - not to mention a separate and very impressive, period correct operational 50's style diner. We had the... More

This is not a large museum, but it's an interesting one with a good collection that documents well the mass transportation revolution of the automobile as we moved away from the horse-drawn carriages to propulsion via the internal combustion engine. They even have a 100+ year old engine that still works. It has actually outlived it's builders, which is unusual...... More

I came through here heading from Detroit to Quebec. I've been to several automobile museums all around the world. Based on that this was a disappointment. Not to say it was bad, just not worth the side trip to see it. All told it took me less than 30 minutes to go through the entire place reading many of the... More

Always a delight to visit both the museum and, in decent weather, to wander the marvelous collection of original homes and old commercial buildings. Sort of a pioneer village it is a place where really authentic old buildings are kept, restored and protected. Former prominent Canadian Eugene Whelan's original family log home is here. This Museum complex has become so... More
