The museum did not have everything in good repair, and some things were missing. We could not find someone to help us out and answer any questions. It was very disappointing.

I recently came back here after many many years for the Maple Harvest Fest, and overall it was a very pleasant experience. The Museum itself is quite small, but they do offer activities for groups and educational sessions for students. On the particular day that I attended, I thought it would be something similar to attending a Maple Sugar Bush;... More

My daughter recently attended with a group of Girl Guides and loved it! The tour was amazing and I just learned they offer camps too! Sure has changed since I was last there some 30 years ago!!

This a must see for any Ontario resident, so important to know/see what was here before the arrival of Europeans. So sorry to see a site like this slowly running down obviously due to lack of support (read $$). Still a must see though.

Great museum for looking at and coming in contact with local native artifacts. You can also have birthday parties or go to day camps at this museum.

I came in wanting to like this place. But the collection is so sparse and poorly curated that I wanted to leave in less than half an hour. Even the Lawson site itself, adjacent to the museum, was a disappointment. There was almost no signage to help a visitor grasp the site... and what signage existed was dated and in... More
