So glad we found the museum, we were not expecting to spend so much time in it, but we started watching this very good film on the history of the war of 1812. Loved all the exhibits and we learned a lot too.

Right behind the Waterfront hotel, free and open to the public. It is housed in one of the oldest houses in Windsor, and contains the history of the community, as well as some of Detroit's history.

I really like this little museum in the historical house. The volunteer working was a very nice and informative woman. They had information in various languages, including Francais and English. They also had a stair lift chair for those who could not walk. Good little 30-45 minute stop!

Love to learn some local history or visiting the city of Windsor and would love to know more about it's community? The Windsor Community Museum is a great little place to check out for the young and old, with changing exhibits about Windsor and the people that make up this tight knit community. It's not just a museum they are... More

In Windsor one cold afternoon, we stumbled upon this museum in a historic house. The house, built by Francois Baby, is packed with historical items that tell the history of Windsor. If you have kids, go directly to the basement, which is full of hands-on exhibits, games, and crafts. (It is aimed at younger kids, but my teenage daughter really... More

The museum is housed in an old residence and, though small, very thoughtfully organized. It has a permanent exhibition and other, changing ones.

Although the museum is small, it packs a lot of local history into it. It is worthwhile to visit. The 1812 material has been done really well and is very interesting since it focuses on the local elements.

We really enjoyed this spot, and learning about its great importance in Canadian history. There's a great area for kids in the basement. It's tucked away between hotels and parking lots, but it's well worth seeking it out to spend an hour learning about the War of 1812, bootlegging and more. And it's free!

This is a Museum in early stages of development. What it needs to enhance what it already ahs is some decnt financial support for a City intent on holding property taxes to Zero--it is a great idea and a good little museusm but it needs a City in Suppport.
