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

Decided to go on a day trip and was interested to see what they had to offer. Started with lunch in their 50's diner; then onto see the cars and motorcycle exhibit - literally from the very first to the 80's Quite the display including Harley's, Model T's, ambulances, firetrucks, etc. Then onto the "village" to see over 25 different...

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.
