Nice little museum. Never knew it was there on past trips to the Soo. After some research I discovered it. Had to check it out as my family love history. Hopefully more people get to check it out because it's an interesting place to visit.
It's been a long time since I've been to a museum with so much exhibit and reading. The information was well presented and the exhibits are nicely done with the walking stick telling the stories with good voices but my kids were disappointed with the lack of exhibits designed to experience the history. Some things were touchable and they enjoyed those items, especially the boats. I would not recommend it for kids under second grade but it's good for kids finishing third here in Michigan because it goes along with the history they learned about the state this year. Forget bringing toddlers or preschoolers.
