No matter your age, there's something for everyone at the Simcoe County Museum. There are interesting exhibits, friendly staff and little keep sakes to purchase if you're so inclined. It's genuinely well worth a visit.

This indoor and outdoor museum packs a lot of information of the natives and the Simcoe area. Very educational. Be prepared for lots of walking inside and out.

I visited the museum a couple of years ago during a quilt/craft show and was blown away by the talent that was there. My most favourite was seeing a loom in action! I was enthralled with it and could not tear myself away for quite...More
