The dinosaur's exhibit was ok. But could have been better. Should have more hands on activities for the children when other areas are closed for the season.

A nice Sunday Afternoon Activity. A lot to see and hear. Many local artifacts on display. Seasonal and permanent attractions. Really large crowds. They charge a somewhat high fee for entry.

Amazing exhibit. Completely interactive. The kids loved the "live" dinosaurs on the live screens that appeared to be right there with them. Highly recommend this to all age groups.

A great variety of activities My kids loved the video wall the most and many varieties of fossils. The exhibit is small enough for a nice half day visit.

I took my grand daughter during the Christmas break and she enjoyed herself immensely. The exhibit (history of Berlin-Kitchener) was set up well and it really gave you a taste of what it was like during that time. Really well done.

Is this something you could take two 17 month children to? Are there exhibits they would enjoy in the winter?

No, but "The Museum" is downtown Kitchener, not the same, is really a children's museum. Better.

Hello...the indoor exhibits could certainly be enjoyed in the winter time, and I am sure the grounds would be beautiful, too.

Has anyone seen a booklet written by former students from St.Joseph's School in Cambridge(preston). We were the first history class from Waterloo County to live at St Marie Among The Hurons in Midland Ont & write a booklet containing poems,,stories & diaries etc based on our experiences.I am interested in obtaining a copy.This would be approx 1975 or 1976
