“Very informative and cool multimedia film.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Very informative little museum with a great ancestry room where helpful staff will assist looking up relatives that were on the immigrant ships. Takes just over one hour to tour thru if you take one of the 30 minute guided tours and see the film.

“Heart Warming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The stories told by the people who came to Canada, were heartwarming, as well as a "bit sad"! What they must have endured on their journey would be unfathomable to us in this day and age! The Tour given was excellent and informative!

This museum provided insight on immigration to Canada. I found the movie very well done and I enjoyed the guided tour.

“So much history!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I was dragged to this museum with friends and initially thought it would be very boring and not interesting, boy was I wrong! The history, and even ability to track your ancestors who could have travelled across the Atlantic to start a new life is exciting and you feel as if you've been teleported back in time.

“Family History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

didn't actually see the museum, but spent time looking up family roots. The room was staffed by college students who were very helpful.
