Longhouses, etc did not have many 'comforts' and all you spoiled, pampered people should educate yourselves. Saying the place needs work and in the same breath whining about admission fee is selfish and counterproductive. You want more but not willing to contribute? Shame on you! Looking for bright shiny things? go to Disneyland!

Toured the grounds and learned much about the ways of our indigenous peoples. A must see for all Canadians, learn about Native history and culture..

This could be a really wonderful museum. The collection they have is wonderful and interesting. But it is dated. It needs to be brought into this century. Everything was dusty, and the drawers all stuck. I understand they do some camps with kids as well as host various events which all sound amazing, but the exhibit itself needs some attention....

We love to visit museums, especially ones that tell of Canadian history. So, we were slightly disappointed by this museum's state of affairs. It doesn't look as though it's been properly maintained for some time. It had an air of neglect hang over it. What a shame!

We have been there several times. It is a few hours entertainment. There are some old traditional buildings on site and insite into the culture. I have difficulty pulling the kids from the souvenir store.

A tribute to the Aboriginal population, which once existed along the Thames River. A must for those interested in exploring the culture of the first Canadians.

If you like a museum with a lot of hands-on interactive exhibits, this is not the place for you. The indoor exhibits are dry. The subject material is interesting, just not well presented. Fortunately we used our Cultural Access Passes for admission here. I would have been even more disappointed if we had payed for admission.

We visited the Museum of Ontario Archaeology during Doors Open London because our 4 year old daughter had expressed interest in visiting but I'd heard it was run down so I wanted to visit when it was free. The staff was friendly and we found the main museum building interesting but it wasn't very large and I would compare it... More

I was very disappointed with my visit & would not recommend it to anyone. The exhibits inside the museum are terribly organized – laid out randomly without any thought. I wasn't drawn to really look at anything at all, which is disappointing because I think the exhibits *could* be interesting if they were arranged properly! The outdoor area was as... More
