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

This is a wonderful addition to the attractions in this area. The Canadian Transportation Museum is one of the best stocked auto museums we have ever toured. Countless hours of volunteer work has gone into this place and it shows. In addition to the museum there is a unique 1950's style diner that is open for breakfast and lunch and... More

The transportation museum and heritage village is a quaint but complete display. The local history in the heritage village is collection of buildings which represent the area. The best time to visit is during another event on the grounds to get the best of both worlds.
