I have only visited this museum on days that the RCMP were not available to do their ride - I would recommend for someone to google this place to find out when the rides are and visit at that time

An informative museum with lots of exhibits and old buildings to wander around. The musical ride is pretty good and you are permitted to visit the horses in the stables. Worth a visit.
