If you have family in gray county ontario this is the place to serch .they have all the county history from early 1800 to the present. A wonderful display of early life in gray county.A lot of history of townships. Maps of early towns and areas that are no longer on the newer maps.

This place continues to get better. Besides the permanent displays there is usually a special theme display. The pioneer village is a work in progress and has grown substantially since I first visited here about 10 years ago. Kids will never be bored and lots of room to run.

My husband and I took our three grandchildren to see the dinosaur exhibition. Needless to say we could hardly get them out of the museum. Well worth the money and the time.

Took the grandkids to see the dinosaur display. Lots of sounds, colour and a huge display. The outdoor display was also a good display.

What a surprise - an elegant, modern and architecturally beautiful new museum set in a lovely rural area of farmland. The large expanse of land surrounding the museum contains a pioneer village but unfortunately we attended early in the season and the pioneer village had not as yet opened. The museum was outstanding - it seemed to have exhibits and... More

Something for everyone - in the museum are various exhibits from temporary Dino one to fascinating history of liquor in the area; outside, a good range of buildings both in time periods and types with knowledgable guides; and there's what appears to be a nice archive, also a shop with some interesting merchandise. Too bad the cafe is only open... More
