“INteresting for Canadians...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Not much for the foreign traveler. The story and movie are very insignificant if you are not Canadian... do other things.

“History with a Life”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

The sound equipment is showing its age. History shown in a novel (hokey?) way, but puts a good perspective to Confederation.

“Good Glimpse into Canadian History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The movie describing the start of the Federation was interesting and a good preparation for viewing the upstairs rooms. It seemed to bring those days to life.

“History Refresher!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

This exhibit was quite corny. We were provided with audio head phones to hear the exhibit as we walked through but the premise is that it`s a media telecast of the conference in the 1860`s when they had no media telecast. You had to stand on a certain area of the exhibit floor to hear what that part of the exhibit was about but at times, you didn`t know if you were listening to the right audio for the right exhibit. Inside the visual exhibits were very nice and I did find that it was educational.

Excellent displpay of history of our founding but the communication system would be a pain if it was real busy. Staff were helpful and glad to see us
