Small but interesting museum. Learned that this area was settled by "loyalists", tories to us. The staff was very accomodating.

Fascinating artifacts and information presented in a interesting manner. Staff very pleasant but unable to answer a question or 2.

Most visitors from the U.S. are woefully uninformed about Canadian history. This delightful museum helps correct that fault. It is an eye-opener and small enough to enjoy in a morning's visit

This is the oldest purpose-built museum in Ontario. The collection is amazingly vast and varied, the curatorial staff are both knowledgeable and helpful. This is the number one attraction in Niagara on the Lake.

Collections were limited. Focus is on the War of 1812. If you are a US citizen, you leave feeling a bit uncomforable.
