We visited The Museum of Ontario Archaeology in September of 2014 and then again during March break of this year (2017). It seems they are working to improve it. They have recently added a virtual reality feature which we have not used. In March we...More

The museum did not have everything in good repair, and some things were missing. We could not find someone to help us out and answer any questions. It was very disappointing.
