Our kids just had their annual school fall fair at Grey Roots and as usual, it was fantastic. The heritage village and all of the historical buildings are awesome, especially since they have actors play the part and lead the tours. I would give it 5 stars, but there always seems to be a lot of bees around the museum... gets a bit scary when you're trying to eat on the patio or even when the kids are having juice. Other than that, the exhibits and activities are a great thing to do in Owen Sound.

Thank you for taking time to review your visit to Grey Roots! The Sydenham Fall Fair is such a great event, it is a pleasure to host and see everyone enjoying themselves and learning about the history of Grey County in the Heritage Village. As we are in a rural area, bees do like to visit us annually as well. However, we are aware of their fondness for the Heritage Village and use humane methods to encourage them away from high-traffic areas. We hope to see you and your family again this year at the Fair or at another family-friendly event at the museum.

Stayed in Owen Sound this weekend and took my 3 kids to this musuem. We absolutely loved the place! Great way to take us back in time. The kids loved the blacksmith and my husband and I loved the garage with the old cars. I loved the fact that the gentleman that was working at the garage part still worked on his own cars!

Thank Beth B
