We had previously stopped at this museum while en route a year ago to Niagara Falls and it was closed; we were pleased to see that it was open (with covid19 protocols) this week when we drove by. It highlights an important era in Canadian history, and we learned a lot in the short visit. Tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and as we were the only ones going through at the time he was able to answer lots of questions. Worth the visit when you are in the area!

We were glad this was opened. I find that Ontario Parks was able to get a lot out of that historic house, and uses it to teach all visitors about Laura Secord, but also about her time, her place as a woman of her time, the war of course, and settlers relationship with indigenous inhabitants.

They have good and interesting artefacts.

Please drop by, you'll enjoy.

My husband and I were there in the summer and enjoyed the history in this place. They have a lovely shop with stuff you can eat and buy worth the stop while in Niagara

We wanted to experience some of the War of 1812 history so we decided to stop here on a trip to Niagara. After winding our way into this place (and one U-turn later) what we thought was to be a homestead turns out to be a house. And a rather small house. It was interesting to see the staff dressed in period dress, but the house was disappointing. The only way to view it is to go through with a tour guide so you have to wait for a tour. Then you are led into the house only to be told the artifacts are NOT original to Laura Secord (but are from the period). Disappointing.

For two adults and one child it cost almost $30 for entry. It was not worth it.

Laura Secord was one of Canada's heroines, and it is completely right that her homestead is preserved as a historical monument. Unfortunately the historical value doesn't necessarily make it a great attraction to visit. You can enter only by guided tour, taking half an hour and costing $9 for adults. The tour consists of showing you round the home, with a few basic facts about life in the day, which you probably already knew if you;ve visited other historic sites. We got a short tour for a reduced fee, because we arrived at the end of the day, but we honest felt we saw everything we wanted. The house is sparsely furnished with antiques "from various periods" i.e. not necessarily contemporary with Laura Secord, well-displayed enough but not really giving a feel for life at the time. $9 would have seemed like too much for what we saw.

It's rare that we celebrate the achievements of women. This treasure does and she changed history. It's a great story and the docents do an amazing job of bringing her story to life.

For those of us who though that Laura was somehow involved in the development of chocolate in North america, it was quite informative. Certainly a glimpse intot he past. Great artifacts and information, worth a visit.

We stopped off to see the homestead and for the price there was not much to see. It took about 15 minutes to see everything and that was taking our time. The museum part and the church was closed ... maybe it would have been more worth it if they were open to explore? There is a gift shop on site.The history of the Battle of 1812 is interesting and this place is part of it ... plan a day trip of visiting Queenston Heights to see the Brock Monument on the way there.

Any Canadian should know the significance of this attraction, but sadly many don't. Make sure to stop by and make yourself aware of it's importance.
