We went there as our whale watching tour was canceled due to the weather. What a lovely surprise. We really enjoyed our history lesson and all that went with it. Even in the rain, it was a beautiful walk!

The battles between the british and the french was well explained in the museum. There is a remainng building onsite from 1708. The museum did a great job in explaining through film what they went through.
