  • Nice architecture; currently undergoing major renovations (June 2017) that detract from the ability to enjoy the building
  • was closed. could not go in. historic. loved the 1864
  • It's very interesting and a good place to learn more about Canada
  • Historical site. Good explaining on what happened. Could make surrounding area more attracting.
  • Came here in the summer and absolutely love how people were dressed in costumes and living out the lives of those in the 1800s to 1900s ! People were playing chess and playing croquet
