Visited on a couple of occasions. It has some interesting period items, but the part I enjoyed the most was the local historical maps and details. Learned quite a few things about our city. Could it be better? Sure, if they had the funding...over all, I enjoyed the visit.

One of Windsor's most historic buildings--over 200 years old. Unfortunately interior access is limited because some provincial two-bit bureaucrat decided to convert it to an office. Scandlous treatment of a lovely structure.
