Nice small size, easy to get through in an hour. Some interesting pieces and good explanations of Acadian origins. Also liked the shops next door, part of the same museum site. Was a bit expensive, but I don't fault them.

The museum brought the story of Acadien history to life in an informative and entertaining format. We really enjoyed the exhibits and learned a great deal about the histoyr of the Acadian people and their influence on the Gaspe' region.
