Interesting displays of the ship building, taxidermy ducks and birds. Worth a short visit if you are in the area. Located in a mall. Parking is nearby but you have to pay for it.

Must do this. And ask for a tour. The not so large museum gives you an understandable and full overview of the geology of the whole area, including the sea life and the origin of the reversing falls. Nicely visually documented place, amazing for kids...More

Visited here on family day, with my husband. I found that as a child, my attention span was limited and I really never "LOOKED" at the contents of the museum before. Well if you haven't been here as an adult, I suggest you visit. The...More
