There were 2 exhibits open when I went but those 2 exhibits are well worth the price of admission. There was a temporary exhibit on the second floor and the audio/video support provided for it was amazing and so incredibly informative!

Dear visitor, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Sadly, the Museum suffers from a lack of space since its creation, which is why we cannot display all of our artefacts. We still hope you enjoyed what you saw during your visit.

Main collection displays artifacts of clothing & jewelry produced by indigenous peoples, including Haudenosaunee and Meti people. Exhibit notes describe how interactions with French & British culture influenced clothing design, and how traditional values & designs continued to be expressed despite oppressive policies.
